Hank’s is the work of Bruce and Eric Bromberg, the duo behind the massively successful chain Blue Ribbon. That restaurant has nearly two dozen locations worldwide and celebrated 25 years in business last year. Now the brothers are focusing on switching things up with a more fast casual model, offering a family-friendly, largely customizable menu experience that highlights burgers, shakes, salads, breakfast items, and drinks for the adults at dinnertime. Hank’s will also offer some deli classics like matzo ball soup, plus that famous Blue Ribbon fried chicken, reports Food & Wine.
