If you’ve been looking for somewhere nicer than a boring ol’ food court to spend your lunch break, then look no further guys, because District Brasserie is here to save you from your sad lunches (and yourself). This place mixes French fine dining with casual take-away vibes with their new brasserie and bakery (a match made in foodie heaven, if we do say so). We’re suckers for the aged brass and polished marble fit out that brings just the right amount of fancy to your brekky/lunch meeting/dinner date/day. It’s sophisticated without being schmancy, so obviously it’s our kind of place.
Sitting back with a smoked ham and gruyere toastie in one hand and a Single O coffee from the espresso bar in the other is the breakfast of champions. Or you can say ‘oui’ to the freshly baked croissants, Parisian pastries and organic sourdough (because cake for breakfast is definitely a thing).
If you’re settling in for a long lunch, then the charred beef cooked in a charcoal oven imported from Spain is a must-try. The heirloom beetroot salad and King Ora salmon with green tahini and oh-so crispy quinoa are almost too pretty to eat (almost but we did it anyway). And don’t forget to order an extra serve of triple-cooked chips that you’re definitely not going to want to share.
