Bar Primi is a delicious pasta outpost in the East Village, where you can treat yourself to the likes of fiore di carciofi with smoked bacon and pecorino; a roast beef, italian peppers, and provolone number known only as "The Sandwich"; and bucatini with lamb amatriciana.
The Italian eatery from Noho Hospitality Group, known for its pasta-centric menu, serves up a range of sweet and savory brunch dishes. The crowd-favorite is obviously the breakfast spaghetti with kale, pancetta, and a poached egg or opt for the ricotta pancakes topped with Nutella, banana, and walnuts. If you’re more in a tapas-type mood, the antipasti menu is rife with options like the tomato and basil pesto rice balls; peperonata burrata; or beets atop pimenton yogurt. Sip mimosas (choice of orange, grapefruit, or blood orange) or spicy Bloody Marys by the glass, or pitcher if you’re feeling it. If you want to keep the drinks flowing without a change of scenery, Aperitivo Hour—specialty cocktails and small bites—starts promptly at 3 pm on the weekends as well.
