Having been relocated to the heart of downtown Fredericksburg, August E's new home on San Antonio Street features a sleek Zen-like atmosphere with contemporary Asian décor. Chef-owner Leu Savanh offers a constantly evolving seasonal menu. He also adds a subtle hint of his Thai background to such dishes as the New Zealand lamb with balsamic honey-glaze, and a cloudlike fillet of Hawaiian escolar pan-seared and served with a tempura-fried lobster tail, baby bok choy, and
mascarpone whipped potatoes. Chef Savanh also offers a full sushi menu and a fairly extensive selection of sake.
