VEGAN FAVORITE STICKY FINGERS EXPANDS TO WASHINGTON’S H STREET CORRIDOR
Two-Time Cupcake Wars Winner Doron Petersan is Aiming for Bigger & Bolder With Second Location
Two-time champion of Food Network’s Cupcake Wars, Doron Petersan, announces plans to open Sticky Fingers Bakery and Bistro on Washington D.C.’s thriving H Street Corridor in early 2015. The second iteration of Petersan's award-winning cafe will be located at 406 H Street NE in a 2,600 square foot space featuring an expanded bakery program, bistro dining menu and full bar.
"The second location of Sticky Fingers has been in the making for a long time now, and H Street is the perfect spot for us to expand into," said owner Doron Petersan. "The neighborhood is really coming into its own, and with the addition of the street cars it's only going to get better. The area has the same kind of young, active and compassionate residents that our Colombia Heights location has been serving for years.
The original Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats opened in north Dupont Circle in 2002 with the mission of bringing delicious baked goods made without the use animal products to the District of Columbia – a mission that eventually expanded to include a full menu of savory plant-based comfort food with a move to Columbia Heights. The new Sticky Fingers location stays true to Petersan's original vision and will offer an expanded menu and more dining space than the original location. The bakery and bistro will have the look and feel of a classic mid-century American diner, featuring a lunch counter as well as "grab-and-go" service and table service for approximately 50 seats. It will be open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and have bar hours on Fridays and Saturdays.
The expanded bakery program will include Sticky Fingers classics, like sticky buns, cookies, cakes, and cupcakes, and new items, like Italian-style breads, scones, danishes, croissants, and pies. The bistro menu will focus on vegan and gluten-free comfort food and the bar will serve beer, wine and cocktails.
