There’s a new French culinary destination in town (or in our case, city)! Le District made its debut less than 3 weeks ago in the luxuriously renovated Brookfield Place. You might remember this place from when I wrote about its interior food court in my blog post “Foodies Love Hudson Eats!” Well, renovations are finished and it houses many new shops and stores, an indoor courtyard with palm trees, a temporary music installment, and the new Parisian food court right below Hudson Eats.
When I first found out about the new food hall, it was said that Le District is the “French version of Eataly.” Its service hasn’t quite met expectations yet, but then again they just opened, so I’m thinking they’re still getting the hang of things. Although it does have its different stations and features, it is much smaller than Eataly but still just as upscale. Its space is quite modern and has a certain romance to it as you walk through its different districts. As the name hints, the hall is split into 4 different sections:
the Café District, offering pastries, crepes, and coffee…
the Market District, selling cold cuts, bread, fish cheese, and wine
the Garden District which is small but has some to-go foods, products, and fresh produce;
Though my stay was short and I did not sit nor savor anything, I’m bound to be back to try at least the charcuterie and crepes. For now, Le District is still in its early days so order is still to be found, but be patient: I do believe as soon as it settles down and gets more popular, it’s bound to be serving not only high quality goods but hopefully quick and great service!
Gosh, I love these indoor food halls in NYC. Here’s another one to check out if you haven’t already! The Grand Plaza Hotel
