The team behind District: Donuts.Sliders.Brew
is set to open a new location in Lakeview this summer.
It’s the third brick-and-mortar for the company, which runs the donut and sliders shop at 2209 Magazine St. and District: Hand Pie & Coffee Bar
at 5637 Magazine St. The company also runs a separate commissary kitchen for off-site events and the mobile District Streetcar.
The Lakeview location, which sits on the corner of Louis XIV Street and Harrison Avenue, will have the same menu and concept as the Donuts.Sliders.Brew spot, says co-owner Chris Audler.
Audler, who lives in Lakeview, says the Harrison Avenue spot was attractive for the neighborhood vibe and family-friendly atmosphere.
“It’s going to be pretty much the same menu and mentality,” Audler says. “We’ll be trying out a few new creative things, but it will be very much in the same style – same bar seating, same layout, same wide-open kitchen.”
In addition to the donuts, sliders and breakfast items, the shop will serve coffee drinks from Atlanta roasters 1000 Faces Coffee, soda drinks and fresh-squeezed juices.
Audler says the Harrison Avenue space is still undergoing extensive renovations and he hopes to open by mid-summer.
District: Donut.Sliders.Brew opened in October 2013 focussing on creative donuts (maple Sriracha, olive oil and rosemary, banana split) and sliders, such as a fried chicken with sweet and spicy slaw and candied jalapeno, or a pork belly sandwich on a waffle bun with garlic and anise-flavored Creole mustard. A year later, the team opened District: Hand Pie & Coffee Bar on upper Magazine Street selling sweet and savory versions of the portable filled pastry.
