Our last meal at the renown Restaurant August was a complete let down. Again, Donna and I were met with "server stiffness." I do not know why restaurants think distant, snooty service translates into elegance. I think I will bring this up on the Louisville restaurant forum. The best aspect of our meal at August was the half bottle of 2003 Zenato Amarone we were able to order. While the food was described with more adjectives then a Shakespearean monologue, it all was rather bland, expensive, and underwhelming. Next time I'm in New Orleans I will stick to the tried and true. Give me a good bowl of gumbo, some booze, and a good tune and I will be happy forever.
