Can't Miss Dishes at Distrito?

My wife and I are finally making it to Distrito and was wondering if anyone had suggestions for some can't miss dishes? We are thinking about doing the chef's tasting menu, but we are not committed, so please fill me in on your favorites at Distrito.

  1. I like any of the ceviche, the calabazza soup, either the fish taco or if you are partial to tongue the lengua is very good.

    1. I just got this in an e-mail passed to me from a co-worker Super Bowl Sunday they're extending their "endless" tacos:
      (sounds like a great deal to me!)

      For $25 a person, here’s what you can expect:
      Carnitas (pulled pork, black beans and pineapple salsa)
      Lengua (tongue, cebolla criolla and salsa verde)
      Pollo (chicken ropa vieja, queso fresco, crema and radish)
      Camarones y Chorizo (shrimp and chorizo with refried beans, tomato and radish)

      Nachos Ignacio (with black beans, tomato, queso mixto, jalapeno, chile de arbol and radish)
      Nachos Encarnacion (with skirt steak, refried beans, queso mixto, chile de arbol, crema and cilantro)
      Chilango Chop Salad (baby arugula, watercress, green apples, cranberries, spiced pecans and honey-lime-yogurt dressing)
      Frijoles Refritos (refried beans)
      Arroz con Frijoles Negros (black beans and rice)
      Not sure if you want this to be your first experience here, though

      1. I went for UCity dining days but I think they have the same menu...I had their rendition of queso fundido with duck ... awesome!

        1. I highly recommend you go to Amada, Tinto or Village Whiskey. Distrito is really the least interesting of the Garces places.
