If you’re familiar with Public eat + drink, District’s sister eatery in North Adams, then District’s menu will be like an old friend. It’s broken up into sections: smalls, mids, bigs, sides and desserts. It’s difficult to decided because everything looks so good, and like the signature cocktails, so creative. Our reviewer raved about the cheese board ($16), which comes with creamy local cheeses—some aged, some soft, some potent—and accompanying condiments of crisp lemon onions, garlic jam and cherry compote. She also enjoyed the tempura battered mixed mushrooms with chipotle aioli ($10), along with the seared duck breast and hearty, fall-off-the-bone short rib ($14) glazed with cider and flanked by a squash gratin from the “bigs” area of the menu.
