H Street Diner to Serve Knishes and Other NYC Classics

(Updated at 9:10 a.m. Wednesday) The all-vegan bakery and diner opening on H Street NE this summer will serve knishes, pierogies, handmade ravioli and other New York City favorites.

Doron Petersan is working on dishes with roots in her native South Ozone Park, Queens, she said about the all-vegan diner and bakery she’ll open at 406 H St. NE.

“I grew up eating Jewish-Italian food and want to mimic that a bit here,” the owner of the Columbia Heights bakery Sticky Fingers said.

Fare Well is expected to be ready to open in July, Petersan said at an ANC 6C meeting last night. The 50-seat diner will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a long list of breads, cakes, scones, quiches, calzones and casseroles.

“You can grab something quick to go, or stay and take a seat,” Petersan said.

Fare Well sought approval from ANC 6C Monday night for a liquor license. Petersan said she’s planning to serve beer, wine and cocktails mixed by W Hotel mixologist Joey Ambrose. The ANC’s liquor license committee opted for a “protest without prejudice,” in order to give locals the opportunity to weigh in on the license application. The full ANC 6C board will weigh in at its monthly meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
