My family has reservations at August tonight. None of us has been there before, and based on the posts I've read, I'm really looking forward to it.
One question though... When I first looked online and saw the dress code, it said "business casual," which I took to mean dress pants and a button-down dress shirt. I've since seen "dressy casual" listed on other sites, which sounds more formal to me. I didn't bring a sport coat or blazer with me on this trip, nor did anyone else in my family. Will we be better off making reservations elsewhere tonight, and trying August on a future trip? Does it make a difference that our reservation is on a Tuesday night?
I saw a Chowhound post from 2004 that said coats might be a good idea for the guys, but that they weren't a requirement. Even if they're not required, will it be uncomfortable to eat there without one? Will we feel underdressed?
If you think we should make a reservation elsewhere, can you recommend another place for a special family occasion where our attire might be more appropriate?
Thanks very much for your help!
