Birmingham has a new breakfast venue – at one of its longest-established bars and restaurants.
Primitivo, located in the heart of the city’s business quarter, has begun to take bookings for business breakfasts for groups 12 or more.
Owner Prit Sagoo says the bar-restaurant may also open to walk-in trade once breakfasts are up-and-running.
Until now, the smart weekday venue has offered lunch and dinner and private functions as well as being a popular watering hole for local people.
It prides itself on good home-cooked food – and the breakfast menu will tick the same boxes.
There’s a full English breakfast priced at £8.95, with sausage, bacon, mushrooms, hash brown, poached egg, fresh toast and beans or tomatoes.
Or potato rosti topped with grilled Portobello mushroom, poached egg and hollandaise sauce at £7.95.
There are also lighter options.
The kitchen team is still developing the menu to cater for a wide range of tastes.
It’s available from 8am onward.
Primitivo has been in Barwick Street, just behind the Grand Hotel, for more than two decades
It was closed for two years because of the hotel building’s extensive refurbishment and re-opened a year ago.
Prit and her team took the opportunity of the closure to give Primitivo a contemporary unfussy look.
It’s long been a popular haunt for local financiers, lawyers, property developers and other local workers.
