Call us grammar geeks, but it's amazing the difference a single article can make when put in front of a name. We considered calling ourselves "The Guru" for this edition, in sympathy with the restaurant up for consideration here, but decided against. But while The District brazenly insists its own definite article, it has reason to be confident.
Think New York rather than South Africa in reference to this place. JW Marriott has already stamped a patch of the Big Apple at the other end of Sukhumvit on Soi 2 at the New York Steakhouse, where slabs of marbled beef run into the thousands of baht. If that represents the Upper East Side, then The District is its younger brother perhaps down in Soho, offering the flavour but with less pomp and show at the deeper end of Bangkok's Broadway - Sukhumvit.
