lunch at Distrito - short review

just had lunch at Distrito - 4 of us- while the food was good, let's just say that DH opened a bag of chips when we came home...just for a snack. Small, very precious presentations of modern takes on Mexican food. I had the most generous serving- breakfast burrito. It was good, scrambled eggs, tomatos, salsa and other stuff rolled in burrito. Son had fish tacos --it was 3 tiny tortillas, (like 3 inches diameter) with a fish stick lying on each, small shavings of cheese. Forget what the other 2 people had. This was the kind of place that was too cool and hip to have chips and salsa on the table; call me lowbrow, that's what I like. ... you have to order the "sides" and we did! a side order of plantains was 1(one!) grilled nice plantain. They should have said side of PLANTAIN! The side order of beans was an individual ramekin the size of a those plastic applesauce/fruit cups. Really, like 1/4/ cup serving...Our waitress was also really disinterested. She described what was in a drink as "it's the consistency of lemonade" Does that mean it's a liquid? Waited quite awhile to order, then she forgot we were there, until it was time to suggest desserts.
