Two brunches in one weekend may be a tad on the aggressive side, we’re willing to admit, but somebody’s gotta do it. Our destination this Sunday: Primebar.
I had heard good things about Primebar’s brunch, but this was to be our first experience. However, if you’re thinking about visiting, get ready to spend $7 for self-parking.
As soon as we got comfy on the patio, we immediately took the liberty of ordering ourselves a $5 carafe of mimosas. You can also order them individually at $2 a glass. Hmm, I’ll let you do the math on that one, but it looks like we came out ahead. I will say though, even after we were three carafes deep (split between 3 people, mind you) we barely had a buzz. Heavy on the OJ, light on the champs. Just the way I don't like 'em.
Go with the Bloody instead. It’ll cost you $4, but at least you can taste the alcohol. Or go hard like a neighboring table - a couple of guys looking to make friends with the DBC, throwing back Jack and Cokes. They likely started out with the "virgin" mimosas and were forced to take it up a notch.
We began our brunch with the Spinach and White Queso. A melty plate of cheesy deliciousness. Definitely a great starter. For mealtime, we ordered up a plethora of options. One, DBC member went for the BAT Sandwich. Which I suppose stands for Bacon, Arugula, and Tomato…but it’s ambiguity leads one to dream up other more entertaining acronyms. It was pretty tasty. I’m not a huge arugula fan, but those that are will love it.
Shout out to my BFF who made a special trip up from Houston to join us for our day of brunching. She enjoys channeling her inner hippie and as such, the herbivore omelet was right up her alley. I tried to sneak a bite, but hungry vegatarians don’t share their food. I don’t blame them.
We also had a full-fledged paleo at our table and he went the opposite route with the omnivore omelet. At Primebar, there is something for everyone.
Luckily, I’m no vegan, nor caveman, so I ordered the chicken and biscuit. Fried chicken, nestled on top of biscuits, gravy and a fried egg. It was pretty damn good – the biscuit was a little on the dry side, but otherwise, quite enjoyable.
Dish It & Take It
People looking to mix, mingle and have a good time. The seating on the patio lends itself to striking up convos with the people at the next table... or maybe it was just the Jack and Cokes that sped things along!
Dress to Impress: Dallasite’s brought their A-game to brunch today! Primebar doesn’t open until 11:00am on Sundays so you have extra time to find something fun to wear.
Sounds Like: Ooontz, Ooontz! Ain’t no party like a Primebar party, cuz a Primebar party don’t stop. There was a DJ spinning out on the patio, causing us to second guess if we had accidentally woken up in Vegas. Get ready to fist pump!
Best Thing About Primebar: I’d come back for the Carnitas Tacos fo sho. Great atmosphere for those looking to keep the weekend party going strong!
Worst Thing About Primebar: Their "mimosas". Unless you’re pregnant or planning on being the designated driver, I’d go with something else.*
*DBC does not encourage the consumption of alcohol by pregnant women or designated drivers.
Well that’s a wrap for this weekend. See you next time Dallas!
Just some ladies who brunch, looking for the best places in Big D to grab a mimosa and a bloody mary!
