While in Washington, D.C. we had to try the crazy “Lox’d & Loaded Bloody Mary” at Buffalo & Bergen.

A almost $20, this Bloody Mary is NOT CHEAP; however, it’s not terrible considering it is your entire meal: a Spicy Bloody Mary, garnished with lox, cream cheese, capers, red onion on an everything bagel.

It’s not hard to see why this lovely vision was voted Best Bloody Mary by Washingtonian Magazine.

Spice: Not really.

Mix: Unsure, definitely not the star of the show.

Fixin’s: Lemon, olive…. plus an everything bagel loaded with lox, cream cheese and red onions. Oh and a piece of lettuce for color.

Chaser: None offered.

Price: $19.50

Personally, I loved the gimmicky nature of this beast. I paid $20 and had a Bloody and a filling breakfast. The actual mix was nothing special, but it truly was fun to receive and I got many admiring glances from passersby.

The restaurant itself is in Union Market, which is a really cool collection of small shops and a ton of great restaurants/food stands.

I would not necessarily have this drink again, but I would go back to the market and check out some of the other spots–I was just too full to enjoy it after my meal in a glass!
