2016 has been quite a busy year for the Alexandria food scene. Here are several of the restaurants that have made their debut over the past 12 months and how they’re faring today.

Hank’s Pasta Bar, 600 Montgomery St.

Of all the restaurant openings in 2016, perhaps none has arrived with as much fanfare as Hank’s Pasta Bar in North Old Town. The younger sibling to the popular Hank’s Oyster Bar has flourished over the ensuing months since it opened during winter’s final months, and the dining room still sports a busy scene nearly every night of the week.

For a hearty, filling meal in a deceptively small package, choose the wild mushroom lasagna, which is teeming with a rich Bechamel sauce in between layers of mushrooms and pasta. Gloriously rich, it’s sure to warm you during these cold winter months. Or for something down-home and pure comfort food, you’d do well to order the spaghetti and meatballs, which is just as pure and well-known as you’d expect.
