Chef Jamie Leeds gets into the spring spirit with all-you-can-eat oysters and draft brews.
By Danielle Rita
There is no better way to usher in the spring season than with an all-you-can-eat oyster fest. And, as it turns out, Hank’s Oyster Bar is hosting its fifth annual all-day Oyster Fest Saturday, April 21st, at both the restaurant’s locations: Hank’s Oyster Bar Old Town and in Dupont. This event celebrates the bounty of tantalizing oysters offered at Hank’s chef Jamie Leeds’ neighborhood hot-spots. Guests can spend the entire day feasting on a variety of oysters featuring a showcase of local East and West-coasters, washing the tasty sea critters down with an assortment of premier beers, including Lagunitas, Troegs, Victory, and North Coast.
Special guests from local oyster farms and beverage brands will be attending to educate oyster-lovers on the perfect oyster and beer combinations, and of course to pick at a sample or two. But don’t worry, you can indulge and feel good about it: Hank’ s will donate 10 % of sales to Women Chefs and Restaurateurs (WCR).
This one-day annual event will happen on Saturday, April 21st, at 1624 Q Street NW in Washington, DC, and 1026 King Street in Alexandria, VA, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Click here to purchase your $80 ticket.
