Museum hoppers and theater-going foodies sidle up to the classic, yet cozy bar Zola, atop the International Spy Museum, where the covert concoction is its namesake. The “Zola” is a clever mix of Russian vodka with Cointreau, a splash of white cranberry juice, and a squeeze of fresh lime, making this memorable comestible a favorite among insiders. Order some sliders — meatball, steak, cheese, pulled pork — or the brie and Roma tomato, to sink your teeth into.
