The newly reopened Villard at Lotte New York Palace has a trio of delicious Bloody Mary riffs including the Classic (pictured, above) but we are extra into the New Englander, made with vodka, tomato juice, Worcestershire, horseradish, back pepper, fresh lemon juice and Clamato, served with a shrimp garnish. It’s basically a meal in a glass.
