Donuts, sliders and brew. What do these things have in common? They’re all at District.
Since 2013, District has been one of the unique spots in New Orleans to grub. With four locations in the New Orleans area, the Lower Garden District is the original.
The exposed brick walls, Edison lights and industrial ceiling space gives District a hip urban vibe that is sure to impress.
The donuts at District are the stars of the show. You can get your donuts simple, fancy or extra fancy. Emily, the manager at the Lower Garden District location, talked about the donuts.
“Our donuts are made fresh daily,” she says. “And we keep making donuts up until we close, so you know you’re getting the freshest possible when you order.”
And the menu is constantly changing.
“We have different donuts every day,” says Emily. “Revealing our donuts for the day on social media has become a fun way to engage with our guests.”
These aren’t your regular donuts either. With flavors like Blackberry Black Pepper, Buttermilk Drop and Sopapilla, you’re sure to have a donut experience that you won’t soon forget.
The sliders aren’t an afterthought. These sliders are juicy, fresh and packed with flavor. Make your slider a single or double, chicken, salmon, BLT, bulgogi or fried avocado. Fuse your donut and slider experience together with the Croque Madame: a grilled donut sandwich with smoked ham, Havarti cheese, dijon, bechamel and a sunny-side-up egg.
Emily had to clear up a common misunderstanding.
“Our brew is coffee,” she says. “Most people think it’s beer when they see the sign.”
But if there’s no beer, what are those tap handles for?
“Believe it or not, we actually have chocolate milk on tap here,” says Emily. “And it’s really good chocolate milk. We make it with heavy cream.”
District is also doing more than just making donuts and sliders. Emily talked about District’s mission.
“Turn profits, change lives,” she says. “It’s important for us to create a space where people can come together.”
And they’re giving back to the community.
“We do lots of work with the local foster care system,” she says. “It all goes back to the ‘change lives’ part of our mission.”
So forget about your diet for a day and indulge at District.
