Sticky Fingers Bakery coming to H Street

Vegans of H Street, good news: You're getting a Sticky Fingers Bakery in your neighborhood early next year. Owner Doron Petersan chose the neighborhood for the second location of her vegan bakery, where she'll able to take advantage of an expanded menu and extra space when the restaurant, at 406 H Street NE, opens in 2015.

Sticky Fingers has been a mainstay for D.C.'s vegans since 2002, and Petersan's profile as a vegan baker has been elevated by two victories on the Food Network's "Cupcake Wars." The new 2,600-square-foot space on H Street, which will feature a bistro dining menu and full bar, will give her a chance to stretch out from the smaller Columbia Heights storefront. The new restaurant will have seating for 50, and serve vegan comfort food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with extended bar hours on weekends.

"Our food is vegan, but it's comfort food first and foremost," said Petersan, who plans to draw upon her Jewish-Italian heritage for some of the dishes. "Think baked savories – lasagna, casseroles, stromboli," she said.

As for the bar, she plans to source local beers and spirits. The bakery will expand its offerings to breads, and Petersan says that she is still committed to baked goods first and foremost. The Sticky Fingers sequel will be "Really delicious, really wholesome, and basically accessible, traditional, and comfortable," she said.
