Best Bloody Mary in Manhattan?

A friend who loves a great bloody mary is coming to town this weekend. We're willing to travel for the best. Where to go? Thanks!

  1. Prune (1st between 1st and 2nd) has a Bloody Mary menu with lots of interesting variations available during brunch on weekends.

      I read v. high praises recently of the one at the Caryle/Bemelman's Bar - can't remember where though - the bar tender has his own mixer that runs out early apparently.

    2. I had a fantastic BM at Jane. Goes great with their brunch

      1. Sunday afternoons at the Ding Dong Lounge (106th and Columbus). If you're lucky it's a Sunday when one of the regulars has made the hot sauce himself. No food at the Ding Dong, but a big stack of good delivery menus.

        1. I prefer my bloody marys to have tequila (bloody maria) in them, and have found two in the city that are very good: Prune and Great Jones Cafe.

            *swallows pride* I have never had a "bloody maria" :(
            This weekend at Prune, end of story.

          2. Jaques- Imos on the UWS - they are good and spicy (depending on the bartender) and come with a variety of garnishes, including cajun spice and a pickled shrimp. And the brunch food is great.
