A Taste of District Food and Wine

District Food and Wine – 5 Stars Buttery salmon, mouthwatering burgers and the type of  truffle mac and cheese that makes me question if I’ve actually been eating real mac and cheese or cheesy, noodled piles of nothingness. Located in the Design District, District Food and Wine proves that you can eat in merriment without spending a mint. Nothing on the menu is over 16 bucks.  Hours can be a little tricky here, so, if you do develop a craving for their grub, be sure to see if they’re open for business. Nothing worse than getting a hankering for something, only to find out they’re closed for the day. $$…
