Jamie Leeds made a name for herself at 15 ria (1515 Rhode Island Ave. N.W.; 202-742-0015;, but she longed for her own place in her own neighborhood. In May 2005, she opened this seafood joint on Dupont Circle near her house and named it for her father, an avid fisherman. It's not perfect—the tables are close together, the noise level can get thunderous, and the kitchen is so small, there's no dessert, just a few chunks of chocolate with the check. Still, Hank's is a reliable, casual place to stop in for oysters and clams on the half shell, lobster rolls, popcorn shrimp and calamari, and crab cakes cooked on a griddle. Of course, that might just be your idea of perfect.

Dinner daily; lunch on weekends only.
