Best bloody mary in OC

I love a good bloody mary, the best I've had is at "The Loft" at the Montage in Laguna. Any ideas on your favorite, I live in Irvine?

    1. I think it would be fun to drink a Bloody Mary in every single bar in Orange County and then decide which was best.

      Sort of like a quest.

      1. I actually like Mary's Bloody Mary's at The Place in CdM - lots of horseradish. Not exactly on the same elegance scale as the others mentioned, though... Can't say I've tried the others & now that football season is over, it will be awhile before I get back to The Place.

        1. Not for a purist, but the bloody marys at Sunday House in San Clemente are super. You just cannot believe them - they are almost a meal!!! I believe the restaurant is called Sunday House, my feverish brain may not remember the name correctly - its right next to the train depot and is on one of the oldest streets in CA.

            Is this the place your talking about?

            Ramos House Cafe
            31752 Los Rios St
            San Juan Cpstrno, CA 92675

          2. While I can't claim to have ordered a lot of them here in The OC, I too love a good bloody mary. The best I've ever had was also at Ramos House. They do great brunch, and their bloody mary just puts it over the top. Highly recommended !
