Restaurant August, New Orleans
Restaurant August, located in a 19th-century building complete with mahogany paneling and crystal chandeliers, is the flagship restaurant of James Beard award-winning chef John Besh. The menu is influenced by Besh’s Louisiana upbringing, as well as his classical training in Europe. The $20 prix fixe lunch is a steal. restaurantaugust.com
