A New Hank’s Oyster Bar Coming to old Ba Bay Space on Capitol Hill

633 Pennsylvania Ave, SE

Tom Sietsema broke the big news yesterday afternoon via twitter:

“Guess who’ve hooked up? @jamieleeds and @MixtressDC. Chef & cocktail maven are opening a third @HanksOysterBar @ 633 Penn. Ave SE. in June.”

You can see Hank’s Oyster Bar menu here. Ba Bay closed in Nov. 2011. Think Hank’s is a good fit for this location?

Ed. Note: The address was initially listed as NW and changed to SE.

    THIS IS GREAT NEWS. AWESOME. Senarts probably isn’t thrilled, but so great!

    • I have been consistently disappointed by Senart’s.

        Same here. Hank’s in Old Town can be hit or miss, but their clams and lobster rolls are solid.

    hank’s ain’t perfect, but I love it. my only hope is that the original on Q doesn’t suffer from the extra effort opening up a third (right?) location.

    Would really love something reasonably priced, but the neighborhood is what it is. Can’t complain about a great neighborhood then whine that cheap restaurants can’t afford the rent…
