Hank's is a fixture in Old Town, a dining destination 5 miles out of D.C. Short on seating, the King Street location makes it really easy to get to, taking either the Blue or Yellow Metro line to the King Street Metro Station, and then hopping on the free King Street Trolley, operated by the Alexandria DASH transit system. If you're there at 5:30 p.m. you'll get in. Once in, try the oysters in any configuration. Staff knows the sources for the day's offering, and locals know this from that. I love their small plate fried oysters, their lobster roll, and their bar.
