Including the opening of One World Trade Center, there is a great deal of commercial and residential development and activity in Lower Manhattan. One of the newest projects is Le District, the French inspired food hall, that opened in early 2015 in Brookfield Place. It is located at 200 Vesey St.
As the name implies, the project is divided into different districts. The Market District includes La Boulangerie, La Poissonnerie, La Fromagerie, La Charcuterie and La Rotesserie for wonderful.
The Garden District has purveyors that sell groceries and prepared foods, with a salad bar at lunch and a chocolate mousse bar.
The Cafe District has stations with wonderful French pastries, crepes and waffles baked on the spot plus ice cream, coffee and candies. The Restaurant District includes the new restaurant, Beaubourg at 225 Liberty St., which has gotten some very good reviews. It is a lovely restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the Hudson River and boat harbor. It will also have an outdoor oyster bar. L’Appart with its chef’s table will also open soon.
