Cocktail of the month: All About Mary at Todd English P.U.B.

All about Mary
Christopher Smith

Jurassic World all up in your mouth: This is less a drink than a hyper-adaptive meal species that somehow clawed out an evolutionary foothold on top of a Bloody Mary. Available only during weekend brunch, Todd English P.U.B.’s All About Mary ($35) goes rogue with the classic drink’s saladish aspirations and shifts into schizophrenic charcuterie plate overdrive, sporting salami, cheese, stuffed olives, pickled green beans and asparagus, a complete slider, a corn dog nub and a lip-zinging chicken wing. As for the liquid portion of the lunch, the Mary itself is quite fine, too, with a smoky, spicy kick.
