Back Bay Tavern is a bar in Newport Beach. It's an honest-to-goodness local made from sustainable wood (mostly repurposed planks from northern California canneries), with a bunch of organic hooch and all food products originating from the store. Their best drink is the Bloody Mary; the tomato used is from the store, sweet and strong, with the seeds strewn in between ice cubes, as was the briny olive and the fat salt crystals on the rim. Better yet, this Bloody Mary zinged with Tabasco, with Worcestershire sauce (or whatever its foodie equivalent is), with the organic vodka within.
