Vegetable fans deserve a diner, too. Fare Well, the new bistro and bakery from Sticky Fingers owner Doron Petersan, offers a plant-based menu in a traditional diner setting.
The design from Grupo 7 invokes a classic diner look, with everything from a pastry case to a lunch counter. The color scheme emphasizes blues and grays, with old-school lighting fixtures and framed prints on the walls. Exposed brick, wooden stools and clusters of colorful plates on the wall help round out the look of the place, which is located at 406 H St. NE. There are 46 seats.
The diner's menu items, courtesy of Petersan and chef Amanda Desaulniers, are all vegan, whether it be French toast casserole, perogi, buffalo cauliflower dip, or the baked goods Sticky Fingers is known for (more to come about the menu on Wednesday, when the restaurant debuts). Matthew Halligan is handling the drinks.
