Beef stock bloody Mary?

DTC Mar 3, 2004 09:03 PM

i've heard tell of a bar on the UES that makes the best cocktail. does anyone know if there is one place or am i so out of the loop and so not aware? i don't know what the cocktail's name is but it is essentially a vodka and beef stock number.
if there is more than one bar then suggestions as to the best food therein would be great. will be on an expense account, but can't go too overboard.

    First, clarification is necessary. A Bull Shot is made with beef broth and vodka; a Bloody Bull is a combination of a Bull Shot and a Bloody Mary. And the best place to get them, is at the bar at the Carlyle.

      I'm sure you can get one at JG Melon's or at Hunter's (is that still there???).

        Melon's makes a mean bloody bull and a good burger too. This isn't an expense account type of place. It's pretty cheap and I think it's cash only.

        Smith & Wollensky's Grill makes a great Bullshot (aka Bloody Bull) -- amd it's a fantastic way to ease the pain of a hangover!

          The parlor room in Cafe des Artistes does a great one.

          The Bull and Bear Bar in the Waldorf is well known for it's bullshot. Serve food too but I can't vouch for it having never eaten there. Entrees are around the $25 plus range.

            Salt, on Clinton Street on the lower east side, makes an excellent version.

                The name escapes me, but they make bull shots at a place on 3rd ave. just south of 79th street.

                  I believe the cocktail's name would be a Bloody Bull or a Bull Shot, depending where you look. Can't help you on the bar; sorry.
