In order to assure that our readers' choices are valid ones, the Weekly
staff needed to do some research on the martinis at Sullivan's Steak House. First, we sipped the pineapple-infused Finlandia vodka number called The Knockout. Then it was on to the Lemon Drop, a sweet mixture of Belvedere citrus vodka, triple sec and lemon juice served in a sugar-rimmed glass. We think there was one with Ketel One vodka and three blue-cheese-stuffed olives. After that, the sexy bar room took on a bit of a blur. Too bad it wasn't Thursday night, when the signature martinis cost a mere $5. Further research is needed, but that will have to wait until we recover from this hangover.
