The awesomeness: a list of suped-up Bloody Marys to choose from. ("Star of the Sea" comes with celery- and peppercorn-infused vodka and a freshly shucked oyster.) Hair of the dog, right? The not-so-awesomeness: This place is packed every Saturday and Sunday morning. The hostess might give you a smile and a 30-minute wait, but you can cool off your frustrations with a Campari and fresh grapefruit cocktail at nearby Prime Meats until your table is ready. BC's Warm Lamb and Romaine Salad is worth the wait.
