The District is the reason why I changed my opinion about tuna. I used to hate tuna. Then I had their tuna tacos and…it was love at first bite. They were perfectly Asian-esque with daikon, sesame seed oil, and wasabi ponzu.
I came here with my girlfriends for my 22nd birthday and, for a starter, we shared the pulled chicken dip, towards which I had to exercise self-control to save room for my entree. I also got to taste my friend’s braised short ribs which were fall-off-the-bone tender and juicy. Lastly, the cheesecake was simple but exceedingly appetizing.
No doubt, the District is for the foodie.
The District offers local craft beers, a full wine list, cocktails, and, best of all, a fresh, locally-sourced menu with creative twists on classic dishes. The eatery’s interior pays homage to the historic Sanford’s architecture with a rustic dining room and artisan decor.
