Av treated me to Restaurant August, another of John Besh's establishments -- this one on Tchoupitoulas.  It's now one of my favorite places in the city:

And the gnocchi, which are notoriously hard to perfect, but these were just that -- perfect. Perfectly pillowy and rich yet light and just delectable. They were served with blue crab and black truffle. One of the best things I have eaten all year:

Av had this fish, which was even better than it looked, if that's even possible:

...and we were going to leave without dessert, but they insisted and brought out these little bites complimentary, which were...you can guess...also terrific:
