Hot on the heels of Trattoria da Franco reopening, another Italian restaurant is coming to Old Town next week.

Falls Church restaurant Thompson Italian announced that the new location at 1024 King Street — formerly Hank’s Oyster Bar — will open on Tuesday, Jan. 3.

The restaurant’s menu features a range of Italian classics, like gnocchi to saffron malloreddus.

The restaurant will be open from 5-9 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, opening 30 minutes earlier Fridays through Sundays. The restaurant will usually be closed on Tuesdays, except for the opening day.

According to a release from the restaurant, bar seating will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Takeout won’t be available next week, but will start soon thereafter.

Prospective patrons can already book a table online.
