After a museum visit downtown, we found ourselves wanting a little nosh and I mentioned Bar Pilar. While we were both thinking burgers, it turned out that they were only serving from the brunch menu (PDF) at that time. Not exactly what we wanted, but no problem, roll with the punches, etc. Plus, the prospect of a Bloody Caesar soon put us at ease. I’m not much for Bloody Marys, and often when replacing the Vodka with Gin, it’s too much for me, but these were pleasantly smooth and not over the top spicy. The fresh squeeze of lemon & lime definitely made the drink.
Everything was delicious and the atmosphere made for a nice warm haven on a rather chilly December afternoon. My pancake sandwich was the perfect blend of traditional breakfast items, and his chicken salad sandwich even sounded good. Seriously, the crunch from the bite made me wish I’d ordered differently. However… I’m still craving that burger!
