When I first started this blog way back when, Luxbar tweeted me their menu. I took a mental note to try out this joint ASAP. As I confessed in my last blog, life kinda got in my way and I lost track of time and space after finding out about the new addition to our family, so much so that I nearly forgot about Luxbar…until today.
Food: USDA Prime Skirt Steak and Eggs for the hubs and the Breakfast Croissant with sausage for moi.
Drink: I having been loving non-alcoholic beers lately, I know it seems so lame, but it feels more social than a boring ice tea to me, and it’s quite refreshing. Lux had Buckler (NA); I always appreciate something other than O’Doul’s, and this hit the spot. The hubs had a fancy pants Bloody Mary which looked deelish! He especially liked the tomatillo as a garnish, that was a nice touch.
Conversation: Remember when people used the term “phat” a lot in the late 90′s. You know, “she’s so phat” meaning hot or whatever. Well, it came to my attention today that Phat is actually an acronym for “Pretty Hot And Tempting”…WHAT?!?!?! This is groundbreaking news to me. I feel like all this time I have been left out on of this great secret. What a great acronym it is too – it’s genius! I just wish I would have known this in high school. Oh well, better late then never.
Walking to the Viagra Triangle to try out this trendy hotspot, I immediately noticed the outdoor seating out front. Although we opted to sit inside due to impending rain, the allure of people watching outside was Phat (hahaha, ok, enough…sorry), but it was quite appealing.
Our service was efficient and prompt. We never even had to wait for our water to be refilled, but at the same time I didn’t feel overburdened by the service either. We received both our food and drinks rather quickly and everything was Top. Notch.
My sandwich was great. It was everything I expected it to be, if you enjoy croissant sandwiches give it a try. That being said – YOU MUST TRY THE SKIRT STEAK AND EGGS. I was green with envy throughout our entire meal as I kept stealing bites of hubs’ meal. It was, dare I say, perfect! The hash browns were crispy without too much grease, the eggs were - well they were eggs, but they were good. And the steak was the perfect medium, which is hard to do with such a thin cut of meat. Needless to say, it was the highlight of the meal. I almost forgot to mention that the jam that came with the toast (or in this case the english muffin) was home-made and chunky with fruit. Yum.
After breakfast I opted for a decaf latte, while the hubs stuck with coffee. I find that often when ordering a hot drink other than coffee at a busy brunch spot, I am made to wait. Not at Luxbar, both coffee drinks came out in a timely matter, hot and delicious.
