Le District

French 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 has a large bistro menu, but for a quick sit-down feed, head to the Market District counter for a burger 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 restaurants and the Market, Cafe and Garden District areas, so check the website for specific times.
