Hank’s Oyster Bar
© Worn Creative, worncreative.com

A recent addition to the neighborhood, this stylish, all-white Capitol Hill outpost of the Dupont Circle and Alexandria seafood chain boasts ownership of the Eddy Bar, a long stretch of marble offering house-made sodas in flavors such as "citrus sage" and punny cocktails (the Oh Rickey You’re So Fine features bourbon, Gewürtzraminer, and lemongrass). The beer menu is esoteric, consisting mostly of brews you’ve never heard of, from the 21st Amendment Dub Step IPA on draft to the local Port City Tartan. Come for happy hour (Monday to Friday, 5–7pm), stay for the cocktails and bowls of Goldfish crackers.

For wonderfully fresh seafood, an inventive brunch and well-crafted cocktails, it's hard to top Hank's. Eating a lobster roll is practically the unofficial start of summer.
