An Italian restaurant in Adams Morgan, Rosario offers hearty, satisfying Italian fare with plenty of good things to drink to wash it down and a beautiful bar from which to do so. You’ll find roughly 20 Italian wines, all available by the glass or bottle, with a color-coded menu showing the regions where each one was made. Cocktails are split into aperitivos, alongside classics and “contemporaries.” Bring a friend for the Vintage Bottle for Two, a featured cocktail of the month that’s barrel-aged and prepared tableside.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: The Rosario 50/50 Martini is made with a unique and vibrant duo of Fords gin and Cocchi Rosa aperitivo, with effervescent citrus oils.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Plan your visit based on the daily bar special, whether you’re in it for the half-price wine (Mondays) or for low-ABV day drinking ($6 Garibaldis all Sunday).
