Opened in October 2001 with native John Besh at the helm, Restaurant August is the only restaurant to be awarded a perfect "5 Bean" score from <i>The Times-Picayune</i> in the past two years. <i>Food & Wine</i> bestowed Besh with the honor of "Best New Chef" in 1998. <i>Gourmet</i> magazine's Guide to America's Best Restaurants listed August in its top five picks in New Orleans.

Commonwealth Cambridge is an American home style restaurant serving farm to table family style dinners. We will be working closely with local New England farms to bring the freshest ingredients into our restaurant. Commonwealth Cambridge also has a full bar that will serve classic and original cocktails, local beer and a fun wine list. Commonwealth will also have a market with local produce, cheese, charcuterie, house made ice cream, pastries and prepared foods.<br /><br />
