Hank's Oyster Bar
Since it opened in 2005, Hank’s Oyster Bar has been a favorite in Dupont Circle. Inside, exposed brick walls are complimented by light wood tables, exposed duct work, pendant lighting, and a lofted ceiling. Led by chef Jamie Leeds, the small eatery serves classic New England fare and coastal dishes, including griddled crab cakes, fried oysters, and a lobster roll served with old bay fries. The lounge serves drinks and snacks like oysters on the half shell, with half-price raw bar from 11 p.m. to midnight every night.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
