Sticky Rice Reopens

I wanted to share a statement from Sticky rice regarding the restaurant's recent shutdown. For those who missed it, my understanding is that some random crazy guy attempted to enter Sticky rice, was immediately ejected, but ran back in and slashed another patron in the hand as he ran back out. He was arrested shortly there after running down the street while chasing someone with a knife. MPD then shut down the restaurant temporarily, and ABRA will hold a hearing to ascertain whether Sticky Rice employees behaved correctly, and whether this incident should impact Sticky's liquor license.
Sticky Rice will be reopening tomorrow, January 3rd. We will be open for our regular lunch and dinner service but will not be serving alcohol until after our upcoming Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) hearing. We deeply regret the inconvenience that the shutdown has caused our patrons and employees, but are greatly looking forward to being open this week and appreciate the continued support of the H St community.
