Brunch at Bar Primi this past weekend was one of the best NYC brunch experiences I’ve had.
Not only was the food delicious, but the weather was beautiful (been a while, New York). Everyone knows a yummy outdoor brunch and endless Bloody Mary’s surrounded by your best friends automatically means good vibes and a happy day.

My friends ordered:
A twist on the traditional Eggs Benedict, Bar Primi’s is served with parma ham and a tomato hollandaise on focaccia bread. He loved it and I loved the unique look of the tomato hollandaise.

Scrambled Egg Crostino
