The folks behind the gargantuan (and also gorgeous) Provision No. 14 have unleashed a new restaurant onto the already packed U Street (U & 12th to be exact), called Prospect. It’s just as thoughtfully designed, if not a little more restrained, than its older sister and while Provision is a great summer hangout (that patio), Prospect is all about the fall season.

Focusing on cider, wings, and of course, sports (just look at all those TV’s), Prospect may hopefully become the low-key, grown up sports bar that U Street needs. Okay, probably not, but even if you can’t take the game day crowds, it might just be worth stopping in on an off night for the food and drinks, which include classier versions of stadium and tailgating fare plus a whole range of cider cocktails for those of us who occasionally need a break from beer.

Either way, if you’re yearning for a little more adult sports bar experience, Prospect just may be your best bet. At least until it’s filled to the brim with college students. Then all bets are definitely off.
