District serves up contemporary American Classics with an emphasis on local and regional products. Always focused on creating a memorable, and of course, delicious experience for its patrons, District teamed up some menu item favorites with cocktails made with taste enhancement in mind. District’s emphasis on “fresh” was the inspiration for this four-course pairing, which features seafood-specific dishes finished with the sweet flavor of apple pie.
