Best new restaurant (2008)


Making spectacular use of an inherited wood-burning oven, AUGUST presents a greatest hits of greasy, garlicky, salty European food, including guinea hen cooked under a brick, deep-fried-and-festooned-with-flaky-French-sea-salt fritters called panisse, and the deceptively simple-sounding green-onion bulbs with romesco sauce. In doing so, they put to shame the city's barbecues—and maybe the porn industry too—with their clever deployment of wood.
