District – A Northern California Concept – Opens First Texas Location in Addison Fall 2021

District – the beloved Northern California neighborhood restaurant and bar – will open its first Texas location at 5100 Belt Line Road (Village on the Parkway) in Addison this Fall. Open for lunch and dinner, the rustic yet refined concept pairs a menu of globally inspired shareable plates with an extensive and diverse wine and whiskey program. The result is an experience that guests can share with friends and family in a vibrant and communal setting.

Co-founder Jon D’Angelica explains, “Wine and whiskey have a broad flavor profile.
