Fabio Trabocchi commands much of the praise and attention at his excellent mid-century-mod Italian dining room. What sometimes gets overlooked: an equal talent behind the bar. Jeff Faile shakes and stirs some of the best cocktails in Washington—try the nicely gingery Milan Mule or the rosemary-scented and refreshing Fiola. Weekdays 4 to 6, a terrific happy hour offers $6 cocktails and snacks including buffalo-mozzarella fritters and veal meatballs with a runny egg. Insider tip: Faile has a special love for Negronis, the Italian aperitifs of vermouth, bitters, and gin. Six are on his menu; the Negroni Bianco—with Botanist gin from Scotland, Cocchi Americano, and Dolin Blanc vermouth—is spectacular. Open Monday through Saturday.
