Le District, a 30,000-sqft food hall that celebrates the best of French fare, was specifically designed to extend Manhattan’s street life indoors, drawing on the city’s vitality to re-position the iconic Brookfield Place complex in the resurgent neighborhood surrounding the World Trade Center site. Join ICRAVE founder and CEO Lionel Ohayon and HPH Hospitality owner Peter Poulakakos to learn about how the design, lighting, and management of the market have merged a series of overlapping culinary-specific stations, cafes, gardens, bars, and restaurants to create an immersive dining and shopping environment that responds to the growing interest in aspirational eating.
