The Goods From The District Brasserie
North Vancouver, BC | Long live the King! On Monday, April 27, 2015, The District Brasserie, the local foodie hotspot specializing in traditional Dutch fare with West Coast flair, is bringing a taste of King’s Day to North Vancouver. One of Holland’s biggest national celebrations, King’s Day holds special resonance for The District’s Dutch-born owner and head chef, Paul Mon-Kau. Looking to knock back a cold one in the name of The Netherlands? Stop by with a group of good people and dine like the Dutch with 20% off hand-picked traditional dishes and $2 off select drinks.
Since 1885, the anniversary of the current ruler’s inauguration date marks the day when locals and visitors alike turn out in droves to celebrate the monarch with citywide street sales, sporting events, boating on the canals and all-night parties.

About The District Brasserie
Few things in life are better than a cone of patats friet perfectly paired with a crisp Belgian lager. The District Brasserie has perfected the art of progressive yet refined Dutch-Belgian fare in an eclectic environment – on any given night, you’re apt to see the mayor, your hairdresser or a group of students recovering from a big exam. It’s all in a day’s work at The District.
Since opening in 2007, The District has become North Vancouver’s cult dining outpost. Getting people hooked on its signature menu items is the name of the game; with house favourites ranging from The Crab and Shrimp Cake to Gulf Island Mussels to weekend brunch (think Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict, complete with handcrafted Caesar), there’s something fresh for everyone, every day of the week.
If you’re craving a satisfying European-inspired meal and a spot to get social, The District won’t disappoint. You bring the witty conversation, and the rest is on us.
