The November Hit List: Hank’s Oyster Bar, Convivial, Cielo Rojo, and More


After months of tropical-swamp conditions, we’ve got ourselves proper fall in D.C., and you may be out of excuses this year for not visiting your family over Thanksgiving. So let’s make the best of these fleeting weeks of calm before the inevitable consumerist pandemonium ensues.

Pro tip: remember to spread out all the game birds and foie gras dishes this month, with grand shellfish plateaus at Hank’s Oyster Bar, smoked octopus and pesto out of the wood oven at L’Ardente, and the finest bouillabaisse in town at Convivial. All this and more, on your November Hit list.
