The former Hank’s Oyster Bar location at 1024 King Street could become a new location for Thompson Italian, an Italian restaurant in Falls Church.

According to a new special use permit filing by “King Street Italian, LLC”, the Italian restaurant could be taking over the spot vacated by Hank’s in March when the restaurant moved to Old Town North.

According to the permit, the operation of the restaurant will remain consistent with previous special use permits except for a change to alcohol sales codified during the pandemic.

“The operation of the restaurant will remain consistent with the special use permit approval dated June 16, 2012, with the exception of the requested elimination of condition #12,” the application said. “The Applicant requests an amendment to the conditions to eliminate Condition #12 since the October 17, 2020 Zoning Ordinance amendment to Section 11-514 revised the special use permit standards for restaurants to state that ‘on and off premises alcohol sales, consistent with a valid ABC license are permitted.'”

The application said there will also be minor interior changes.

“Minor interior renovations are proposed to the lower level kitchen, main level service area, and other finishes as shown in the enclosed plans,” the application said. “Minor exterior changes are proposed to the doors, light fixtures, and signage. These changes have been reviewed by historic preservation staff.”
