My sister had just arrived in town and I knew what she would want for her first meal - full bellied fried clams, not available where she lives, but a childhood favorite of us both from New England. Our usual place wasn't going to work out so I googled and found Hank's (the Alexandria one). What a find. The place is tiny and easy to walk right on by. And it gets full, especially for its oyster happy hour (select varieties for $1 per and terrific). But from the great craft beer to start, the oysters and the fried clams, the meal was great. The waiter helpfully suggested ordering two appetizer portions then sides separately, for about the same price as the dinners but with better choices than fries and slaw. It was busy and noisy but it's that kind of place. Not romantic dining when I was there but just great seafood.
