In the News: Previews of Le District

Le District french model NY Post••• The New York Post and the New York Times both have previews of Le District, which now says it’s opening Monday—but I’d wager it soft-opens this weekend, before the workers all show up at once. The Times article has maps showing what’s where, while the Post hired a “French” model (has no one there actually been to France?). UPDATE: Eater distilled the best parts of both articles.
