August Gatherings is an upscale restaurant on a very busy stretch of Canal Street. On the menu, you’ll find things like boiled chicken and fish ball soup, as well as some more experimental stuff like gras steamed tofu, ribeye with papaya, and a plate of truffle-y short rib noodles that wouldn’t be out of place at an Italian restaurant. Skip that pasta, and go for some roasted duck and pork belly. The comfortable, earth-toned dining room is a great spot to grab a nice dinner with some out-of-towners, in-laws, or a couple of friends on a Friday night when you want to spend some money (it’ll be about $50 per person) on dinner but don’t want anything too loud.
