Sticky Rice Bangs The Gong

When I agreed to check out my friend who was performing in a Congressional Chorus show at the Atlas Performing Arts Center I figured it would be a great night to go out. However if you haven’t been to the part of H-Street where Atlas is located you’ll find out that there’s not much in terms of food and drink. However there is Sticky Rice.

I originally found the restaurant when I wandered to NE after the Inauguration. I kept it in mind for dinner before the show.

The bare brick space fits in between a Popeye’s and an old red paint townhouse that is typical fare for the neighborhood.

Inside you’ll probably find a line, the place is often buzzing with people waiting to enjoy the sushi/Asian cuisine. A number of booths and a bar fills up the little space available on the first floor. There are stairs that lead to a second floor but I didn’t have a chance to see what kind of seating there was upstairs.

The place had a very west coast feel to it: Asian elements yet hip and modern. The wait staff was very friendly as my friend and I took a place at the bar for some pre-show grub. I ordered a selection of sushi that was top notch while my friend ordered the Sesame noodles that were excellent as well.

Tending the bar that night was the owner’s sister, who was an absolute doll and couldn’t of been any friendlier. Before we left she gave us some special shots that was a cause for gong banging as we threw them back.

Sticky Rice is a place I would definitely return to and frequent more often- if it wasn’t located in a very inaccessible part of the city. However if you are in the neighborhood I encourage you to stop in and see what Sticky Rice has to offer.
