Uni Bistro (403 H Street) will adjust its hours on June 16th as it looks to create more of a dinner crowd in addition to its strong breakfast and lunch business.  Starting on the 16th, Uni will be open from 8 am until 2 pm before shutting down for a few hours and reopening at 5 pm.  The restaurant will then stay open until 10 pm for dinner service (it currently closes at 8 pm).  They will host happy hour from 5-8 pm.  If you haven’t been inside in a couple of weeks, they have renovated the back wall to feature some of their wines and beers that they have available (see picture above).

Batter Bowl Bakery (403 H Street) has recently rebranded as Uni Bistro due to an ownership change.  Previously, the restaurant was owned by neighboring Ethiopic that opened it back in 2013.  It is now owned by the husband and wife team that has been running the day to day operations.  According to the owners, Uni is a play off of nearby Union Station as well as the word unique.  The new logo that they will be rolling out soon is based off a thumb print to highlight the restaurant’s unique character.

As we previously reported, they are hoping to attract more customers in the afternoon and evening by serving alcohol and expanding lunch and dinner menu items.  As part of its rebranding efforts, the outside of the restaurant has been repainted gold and there is a new sign outside.  Expect to see new menu items rolled out soon in a push for later in the day customers.

Batter Bowl Bakery Hopes to Attract Dinner Crowd With New Options

Batter Bowl Bakery (403 H Street), our favorite spot to grab a coffee and pastry on H Street, hopes to attract more of a dinner crowd with beer, wine, and expanded food options.  Batter Bowl is open from 8 am to 8 pm every day, but as the owners point out, after around 3 pm the crowd dies down.  Attempting to change that, Batter Bowl applied for a liquor license several months ago and will now serve a selection of wine and beer in the afternoon and evening.  Look for more food options in the afternoon, including a burger and rotating specials.  For right now, they will keep their current hours, but if Batter Bowl becomes more of an attraction after 3 pm that could change in the future.
