A new restaurant coming to U Street hopes to redefine the sports bar experience.
The Prospect is slated to open this Saturday at 1214 U St. NW, which is the former home of Ulah Bistro.
The eatery is the latest creation from the restaurant group behind Provision No. 14. Provision chefs James Duke and John Leavitt will come along to help the restaurant serve a “stadium-inspired” menu. Perhaps the most eclectic item on the menu will be “hog wings,” a bone-in pork shank delicacy described as a cross between a chicken wing and a turkey leg doused in seven different sauces.
The bar also seeks to please patrons with a specialty cocktail menu, rustic decor spanning multiple floors and more than 40 Ultra HD televisions, controlled individually with a wireless app.
Restaurant manager Brian Dombrowski was hard at work on Tuesday morning preparing the restaurant for its weekend opening.
“Everything is homemade and fresh, and our chefs take a lot of pride in how the make their food,” he said. “It’s exciting because it’s not just your junk bar food. It’s unique and that’s what we want to cater to.”
“We want to bring that unique flavor to the U Street area,” Dombrowski added. “It’s something I hope will stick in people’s brains.”
