Le District

Food Hall in Financial District & Lower Manhattan

Paris on the Hudson reigns at this sprawling French food emporium selling everything from high-gloss pastries and pretty tartines to stinky cheese and savory steak-frites. Main restaurant Beaubourg does bistro classics such as coq au vin, but for a quick sit-down feed, head to the Market District counter for frites or the Cafe District for a savory crepe.

The Garden District offers fresh produce, groceries and a salad bar that's perfect for putting together an impromptu alfresco lunch by the river.

Opening hours vary at each of the restaurants and between the Market, Cafe and Garden District areas; check the website for specific times.
