There are caesars. Then there are BLOODY CAESARS. The popular restaurant L’Gros Luxe may just be the king of all Bloody Caesars.
A typically Canadian vodka-based beverage, in the past few years Caesars have made a resurgence with restaurants and bars giving their own distinctive spin on the classic. This spin is usually in the way of 'how much food do you think we can shove into this drink?'
Enter L'Gros Luxe.
It’s not a simple choice as their menu currently has 5 Caesar options ranging from $11-$30. But if you’re feeling a little crazy you can also build your own in 3 easy steps:
1. Choose your alcohol
2. Choose your juice
3. Choose your garnishes. Um, yeah, 'garnishes' range from mac & cheese bites to onion rings to mini-burgers and pretty much any other heart attack inducing food you can fit on a spear.
Since I love any beverage or food challenge, I chose the L’GROS CÉSAR DE LUXE which comes with ALL of the garnishes. This was not just a drink, it was not just a meal. It was a feast of Roman proportions.
And I am fairly certain I wouldn't be amiss in adding a 4th step to their menu:
4. Find a safe space and immediately nap for 3 hours.
The Caesar itself is definitely on my top list in Montreal. The bartenders take pride in the drink and you can tell. Whether you prefer a classic style or love to try new versions, L'Gros Luxe's is a once in a lifetime experience. You can check out some of the other best Caesars in Montreal here.
