Best bloody mary in the Quarter?

Forgot to mention the sizzling oysters at GW Fins. Succulent. Really some of the best I have had.

Thanks all! twyst, you were right. It was tough to find a bad one. I popped into Brennan's and got one to go. It was quite good. Had another good one at Luke this morning. Back home now. Oh, and by the way...had an excellent meal at GW Fins last night. The lobster dumplings, tuna tarate, black bass with brie macaroni & parmesan encrusted flounder with crispy capers were excellent! Topped off with apple pie and cream brulee. Divine!

New to Mobile Alabama, Where's The Good Stuff?

Welcome to Mobile!

For fine dining, check out the new restaurant, True, in Legacy Village off Dauphin St, across from Spring Hill Hospital. The chocolate desert is the best in town! A bit pricey, but the food was excellent.
NOJA, downtown on N. Jackson St. Upscale.
Cafe' 615 has a wonderful Sunday brunch. $20 entree' with bottomless mimosas. Fix your own Bloody Marys in the bar (or they will make one for you, if you like). Get there early. It's full by noon.
I hear The Royal Scam, downtown on Royal, is good for lunch, but haven't been there myself.
Liquid, downtown on Dauphin, has great sushi.
Osman's, a small family place that has excellent steaks. Be sure to make reservations.
Eastern Shore:
If you venture over to Fairhope, The Colony Grill is a good upscale place. Just had their delicious shrimp scampi last weeked.
Also in Fairhope, Wash House. Upscale.
The Sunday brunch at The Grand Hotel in Point Clear is a gastronomical experience.
