Hank’s Oyster Bar Set to Open Expanded Space
Well over a year after first announcing plans to enlarge Hank’s Oyster Bar at 1624 Q Street NW, chef and owner Jamie Leeds says the newly expanded space will open on August 16. Leeds faced months of regulatory protest hearings over her efforts to expand the popular Dupont Circle dining spot. The newly expanded restaurant will include a private dining room on the second floor and additional outdoor seating. DCist has some preview photos and a overview of the new menu items.
It’s the Monday after Christmas. Only two days after Christmas. However, one of the things I love about living in DC is that people seem to have more vacation time here than in other parts of the country. I guess it’s the government jobs and the trade associations and their tendency to be more generous with annual leave time. So, let’s ease into the week, shall we? After all, another holiday is coming up this Saturday. Note: SYMHM is simply a better headline than Stuff You Might Have Missed for space reasons.
