Hank’s Oyster Bar; Washington, DC

Chef-owner Jamie Leeds worked with Dragon Creek Aqua Farm to develop the Hayden’s Reef, the restaurant’s signature meaty oyster that has a mild, sweet flavor and light brine. At the 65-seat flagship of her mini empire, Leeds offers six types of raw oysters from the East and West coasts as well as perfectly fried oysters and prized Ipswich clams from Massachusetts. Other popular dishes include a broiled soy-garlic glazed sablefish, and tender molasses braised short ribs.
