Distrito Is Off The Hook

Scallops al Pastor at Distrito

OK so we toured Jose Garces’ Neverland Ranch, umm we mean Distrito Friday afternoon. The place is as much a playground as it is a restaurant with features like a Volkswagen bug to dine in, hidden karaoke room, rotating banquettes, swing benches, plastic scorpions embedded in the bar and a crane game where you can win wrestling figurines. How come the Penn kids get to have all the fun?

There are several photographic walk-throughs of the place worth taking a look at.

But we’d be remiss if we didn’t remind everyone that this is a Jose Garces restaurant and that there will be food there.

Here’s the opening menu (PDF).

More photographs of the food and our tale of the tape after the jump.
