About Distrito

  • A cool celebration of the culture and cuisine of Mexico City, serving shareable plates and contemporary interpretations of regional Mexican favorites. Distrito goes beyond classics to offer the full range of exciting and flavorful cuisine served in the Distrito Federal, as it is known by residents. With over 100 varieties of tequila, our margarita bar offers an exciting array of fresh fruit margaritas and features classic cocktails with a twist.

About Chef Garces

  • Since opening his first restaurant in 2005, Chef Jose Garces has emerged as one of the nation’s leading chefs and restaurateurs. Today, he is the owner and operator of more than a dozen restaurants across the country, plus a thriving event planning division and 40-acre Luna Farm. He is a 2009 winner of the James Beard Foundation’s prestigious “Best Chef, Mid-Atlantic” award and one of only a few chefs in the country to hold the coveted title of Iron Chef. Chef Garces is also the author of two cookbooks, The Latin Road Home (Lake Isle Press, October 2012), a culinary and cultural tour of Ecuador, Spain, Mexico, Cuba and Peru, and his stunning first cookbook, Latin Evolution (Lake Isle Press, Fall 2008).
