While the James Beard-recognized cocktails are king at Expatriate, the food is far from plebeian. This pan-Asian-inspired spot, both in flavor and décor, features a drink list that skews sweet without being syrupy. If you can't decide, ask for the Diplomatic Pouch (price varies), a reverse bartender's choice in which you'll be asked what kind of booze you like and a custom creation follows.
