An Early Look at Sticky Rice
All this is to say that I really, really wanted to love the place. But when only two of the six things a friend and I ordered made it to the table after three hours, three beers, and three pleas to the bartender and the manager, our dinner situation had clearly gone south. And not to Richmond.
Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for anything else we got. Three other fairly inedible dishes eventually arrived, so we decided to give up, pay the check and leave … hungry. But since this place had only been open a week or so, and because the management did everything it could to make amends for the kitchen’s mistakes—in the form of understanding words and taking subpar dishes off the check —it hardly seems fair to pan the food until this place gets on its feet. In the meantime, go for the fun atmosphere and order the sushi rolls. Use the black phone in the bathroom to crank call whomever is in the other bathroom. And enjoy a bucket of tots.
Sticky Rice, 1224 H St., NE; 202-397-7655; stickyricedc.com. Open Sunday through Thursday, 5 PM to 2 AM; Friday and Saturday, 5 PM to 3 AM.
