A Look at District’s New Menu

Following the departure of Kris Morningstar and the passing of the exec chef’s scepter to Kevin Napier, District has launched an entirely new menu. Although one can still get their fill of red braised beef tendon and Yorkshire pudding with duck fat, the bistro takes a turn off of the offal highway to lean heavily towards our farmers markets, even offering the meat-free a generous spread of seasonal salads and vegetable plates that restrain the flourishes of inspired eccentricity found in Morningstar’s vision. Which isn’t to say the menu is devoid of creative, carnivorous pleasures. In addition to an oyster bar, there are plenty of innovative preps of protein, with such small plates as a venison relleno, braised wild boar with smoked tomato, shrimp and grits, and Spam sliders, plus entrees of duck confit with duck fat spaetzle, a wild rock cod sandwich, Sonoma lamb rack with date puree, and an “airline chicken breast” coq au vin with braised bacon. Take a look at District’s full new menu below.
