The wine list is a compact personal affair combining an excellent selection of local and international varieties many of which by the glass or carafe. We immediately put to work a ’08 Pegasus Bay sauvignon blanc semillon ($57), tangy and with lots of fruity and intense flavours that complimented our meals with purpose.
And the verdict? District Dining draws its attitude to food from a world of culinary influences taking fresh local produce and actually improving on it. Unlike many of the new kids on the block where failure can be inevitable this establishment should go the full distance. Try it you won’t be disappointed.
