Talented chef Aaron Staudenmaier lands at cool-vibe Addison restaurant with San Francisco roots


“The best way to approach an evening here is to order something to drink and a couple of shared plates, hang out a while, then do it again,” advises Aaron Staudenmaier, the chef and managing partner of District.

The new craft cocktail bar with equally smart cooking debuted last month in Addison’s Village on the Parkway.

Staudenmaier makes everything from scratch at this already popular interloper from San Francisco, but it’s his honey-lacquered crispy chicken sandwiches, his battered squash blossoms oozing with melted goat cheese and aleppo peppers — and sommelier Ron Taylor’s adventurous cocktails and wine list that will pull you back like a tractor beam.

5100 Belt Line Rd. Dallas, (972) 239-9300.
