On Friday night, I visited Trocadero for dinner. As I’ve said in previous reviews, all of the Lowlands Group restaurants have a fine selection of Bloody Marys.

I was very pleased, however, to be offered two specialty Bloodies this weekend. The first was a “Guacamole Bloody” and the second was a “Bacon Bloody.”

It’s a bummer that these two aren’t regulars on the menu as they were both delicious. Just another reason to keep on coming back to these places–you never know what they’ll think of next!

 

I recently wrote about the newest member of the Lowlands Group, Cafe Bavaria in Wauwatosa.

Since this German gastropub has a wide selection of Bloodies, I knew I had some work to do. During my previous visit, I had ordered the “Dusseldorf” and my dad ordered the “Haus”. This time, I tried the special, a Bloody made with sage-infused vodka, while my dining companion was a bit more adventurous, trying the jalapeno “Wurzig” Bloody.

Here’s my write-up on the special:

Mix: Homemade, with different vodkas/spices depending on which beverage you order. This one had sage-infused vodka.

Chaser: Yes

Fixin’s: Varies, depending on the variety you order; this special had bacon, lemon, lime, olive, Brussels sprout, pickle, cheese and a piece of sausage.

Price: $7-$9

As previously mentioned, like its sister restaurants, Cafe Bavaria takes its Bloody Mary offerings seriously.  Delicious, I will be back again (and again!).

And, as a teaser, my aforementioned dining companion? She is also a Bloody Mary aficionado! I met with Susan Fiebig, author of “The Bloody Trail,” a book about her search for Wisconsin’s best Bloody Marys. After hearing about her book, I just knew I had to meet a fellow Bloody Mary lover from the area–over Bloodies of course!

Look for my review on her book to come.

Cheers!

I recently visited Cafe Bavaria, them newest member of the Lowlands Group, in Wauwatosa.

Although this is a highly authentic German gastropub, they had a nice variety of Bloody Marys (ala Hollander, Benelux, etc.).

Like its sister restaurants, Cafe Bavaria takes its Bloody Mary offerings seriously. They are well-thought out and delicious. I would definitely return here just to try the other varieties or get a Bloody on a random day. Kudos to you, Lowlands Group! Another gem of an establishment and more great Bloodies–right in my neighborhood!
