I saw so many mouth watering photos of dishes taken at Bar Primi and posted on Instagram, that I told Jodi we should go there for either brunch or dinner. We finally ended up there for a brunch on a Saturday, early as we made dinner plans; the kind of plan that mAkes you decide to go early enough and try not to indulge, although the latter is subjective as you will see I this post.
This place is not totally unknown as it is one of the restaurants of Chef Andrew Carmellini who flabbergasted (I love that word) me at Little Park few months ago and I really want to try all of his places...
I like the decor there, that is kind of rustic and colorful, with a large communal table on the ground floor.
We decided to go for eggs. Jodi ordered the baked eggs that were served with a tomato sauce and mozzarella.
It was a very good dish, with such a consistency that it could have been eaten with a spoon, the whites not being overcooked and the yolk perfectly runny.
On my side, I decided to try their Italian eggs Benedict.
Served with an arugula salad topped with Parmesan cheese and barely dressed, it was composed of a delightfully poached egg, Parma ham, on focaccia, smothered by a tomato hollandaise sauce. I admit that I literally inhaled these fantastic eggs! This was an amazing dish that I definitely recommend. I, I fact, at some point, mixed the runny yolk with the arugula, replacing the dressing that was missing.
We could not resist ordering dessert and went for the tiramisu.
It was very good: with just the right amount of coffee, the ladyfingers were perfectly soaked and it was deliciously creamy.
That was for sure a good brunch and I cannot wait to go back to Bar Primi for dinner!
Enjoy (I did)!
