If you’re a fan of skewers or s’mores — or any other cuisine on sticks — you may soon be a fan of one of D.C.’s newest eateries, arriving this fall. Sticx is set to open at 1728 Wisconsin Ave. NW, in the former Mail Boxes Etc. space.
Aung Myint’s 2,220-square-foot Georgetown restaurant, serving food on sticks, is inspired by his travels throughout places like Japan and Thailand. Open for both lunch and dinner, Sticx will have 20 seats at a communal table.
Expect to see such items as chicken meatballs, grilled and skewered veggies, tofu on a stick and shrimp teriyaki. Myint is also looking forward to bringing a dish called “hoi jor” to the menu. The food, made with crab and minced pork or chicken, fried and wrapped in dried bean curd, was all Myint’s daughter would eat when she was younger. Also, hoping to get a bit whimsical when it comes to sushi, he is planning to pierce sushi rolls.
Earlier this year, Myint brought the neighborhood a Burmese salad spot called Bandoola Bowl. The restaurant is located at 1069 Wisconsin Ave. NW, just blocks from the Sticx address. If you’re looking to pay a visit there as well, expect salads heavy on texture and crunch with additions like cabbage, fried shallots and crispy yellow peas.
