Offering a daily rotation of oysters on the half shell, Hank’s has become a serious contender among Washington raw bar destinations. For this reason alone, a visit is worthwhile. But the cocktails and small plates (garlic steamed mussels, popcorn shrimp and calamari, peel ’n’ eat shrimp) are also nothing to sneeze at. Feel like loosening your belt? Then three cheers for their larger plates, like the lobster roll with fries. The only thing that’s missing is dessert, the reason for the parting gift of dark chocolate chunks delivered with the bill.
