We’re in the middle of summertime here in Pensacola and we've got lots of fun stuff in store for you guys! With that being said, it is also award season here in Pensacola, and we're very humbled and grateful to be recognized in a few different categories! We are proud to say that we were voted “Best New Restaurant” in Best of the Bay, as well as “Best Steakhouse, Best Restaurant Overall and Best Chef” in VIP Pensacola. We also just received the prestigious “Wine Spectator Award of Excellence” that our bar program earned. I could not be more thrilled for this deserving staff!
As many of you have heard, The District is taking a little break from lunch during the rest of this summer season - I will be revamping the menu and we are planning on relaunching lunch again in the early Fall.
We continue to feature weekly dinner specials using fresh, local ingredients, so come try what’s new on the menu for yourself! We recently added some beautiful Morel mushrooms that our customers are enjoying immensely, as well as Chanterelle mushrooms, fresh figs from just outside of Pensacola, okra and tomatoes. Everything's in season right now and tasting delicious, so come enjoy what we are creating throughout the week at The District!
Don’t forget to visit our Upstairs Lounge as well! We have kicked off our Thursday evening “Flights and Bites” wine tasting and unique food pairings event each week! It's been very successful so far - more and more people are coming to participate and I couldn't be more pleased! Each Thursday, you get a different selection of three bite-sized tapas of my choosing, paired with three tastings of wine as well for $20.
Coming up, we are hosting a private wine dinner for fourteen people in our Admirals Room upstairs in The District. We are super excited about this! It’s going to be in early August and our main course is a Loin of Ribeye that has been aging for 100 days in our meat locker. There is limited seating, so be sure to make your reservation now before it sells out! 850-332-5224.
Check us out if you're on the beach visiting our lovely town! Venture into town for the night and see what all The District and Downtown Pensacola has to offer - you won't be disappointed!
