I don’t usually attend fixed-menu, special event dinners but when this menu landed in my inbox I paused for serious consideration.
Hank’s Oyster Bar is a neighborhood favorite of mine. And as we know, I am a huge fan of their braised short ribs. Next Monday, May 21, Hanks’ Q Street location will be hosting a dinner with Troegs Brewing Company — meaning every delicious, mouth-watering course will be paired with a refreshing craft beer. So here’s what you get: five courses paired with five beers for $70 per person (tax and gratuity not included).
Bonus: you’ll be dining in The Yacht Room, another excuse to enjoy the recently expanded space at Hanks.
Like I said, fixed-menu dinners don’t usually strike my fancy, but a few items that caught my eye included a fried oyster salad, bleu cheese whoopie pie with fig jam and, of course, the molasses braised short ribs.
Reservations for this event are highly recommended. Call (202) 462-HANK (4265) to secure a spot.
