Search for the Greatest Bloody Mary

  • 5

As of right now,

#1 Cambridge Common

Not sure it gets better than this one...

#2 Highland Kitchen

Can anyone recommend some solid bloody mary spots? I mean a place that whether or not breakfast/brunch is worth it....the beverage makes the morning.

    1. I'll start with my general disclaimer that I hate the "bloody mary bar" (a la East Coast Grill). If I wanted to make my own bloody mary, I would be at home, making my own bloody mary... not going to a bar and giving you $9 to hand me a glass with vodka in it.

      That being said, my hands-down favorite bloody mary in the Boston area is at Deep Ellum. They use a bit of wasabi to up the spice, and serve it with a pickled green bean. Great stuff.

      I've also been impressed with the bloody mary at Foundry on Elm, although consistency has been an issue. Sometimes it's great; sometimes it's just OK.

      I'll agree that Highland Kitchen is also good, but I'd put it at #3 in this list. I haven't tried Cambridge Common.

      2. Union Bar and Grille used to be my favorite Bloody Mary, spicy and served with Tomolives. I haven't been there in a few months though.

        1. East Coast Grill, hands down.

          Highland Kitchen is yummy.

          Fat Cat's is good, too.
