Sticky Rice (1224 H St) has worked out a deal to expand and is taking over 1222 H Street, which is the red building immediate on their left as you are facing the popular sushi restaurant. The building is next door to the new Greek mezze restaurant that is expected to open later this summer at 1220 H Street.
Sticky Rice seems to always be packed so this will be good news for fans of their creative sushi offerings and tater tots who don't like to wait for tables on busy evenings. They are expected to gain an additional 40 seats from two floors in the neighboring building. 1222 H St was previously vacant, so the expansion will also further reduce the number of vacant properties along H Street.
