    Not much elbow room and service wasn't particularly friendly when we went, but still really enjoyed the food and vibes!

    Really can't go wrong at Prune. Small dishes make it perfect for sharing with friends. Special roasted beef rib is messy but perfect for bone gnawers. Ask for advice on wine. Save room for dessert.

    The Dutch pancakes are the best!!! The spaghetti a la carbonara is also yummy! Small spot and gets busy for brunch, but worth the wait!

    Above average brunch - the soft eggs were very good, bacon could have been better and the potatoes were a little oily. The pancake, however, is exceptional.

    The blue cheese toast was ungodly and Gabrielle Hamilton is an inspiration

    Ricotta was delicious.

    Possibly my favorite brunch in the city to date. Definitely a restaurant with spunky character. They serve kick-ass Bloody Marys & the spaghetti carbonara is divine. Also devoured the Dutch pancake.

    Best bloodys! And my new favorite thing to order is the oyster omelette - the remoulade sauce is amazing.

    Southwest Bloody Mary and the carbonara were solid picks for brunch.

    Everything is great here. Expect a long wait if you are more than two people. Trying the ricotta today

    So dang cute in here. Come early before they open on the weekends to get first-seating for brunch. I always get the sausage and oysters, but I'm always left feeling hungry. I'll just order more.

    Lovely spot. Huevos rancheros and chickpea stew are hearty. And tasty.

    Try something different for brunch... Sausage & oysters. And get the perfect bibb salad on the side. Not into that idea? Here's another one: spaghetti al carbonara.

    Highlights are the Dutch pancake and chickpea stew. Very small space and popular on weekends so be sure to come early (before 10:30) to avoid a wait

    Casual bistro serving potent drinks and fantastic mains. Try their veal main dish and squid appetiser. Order the ginger cake to finish off.

    You can't go wrong with any appetiser here that includes blue cheese. I know that sounds dumb but trust me.

    On the bar food menu, do try their sardines, even if you've never liked them before! They are served with Triscuits, Dijon mustard, chopped red onion, and Capers! Delicious with beverage of choice
  • David M.
    David McJonathanJuly 1, 2016
    They have some of the very best Sweetbreads anywhere! It's on the Appetizer menu, but an entire order, salad, bread and wine is all you need. Especially if you had bar food first whilst waiting!

    It should in my book be ranked one of the top three restaurants in Manhattan!

    What sold me first on Prune was an article in The New York Times: the chef owner remarked that the very best food was what was left stuck to the bottom of the pot ❤️. I was in love from that moment!

    Oysters are terrific and really well seasoned. Potato rossi is a must have with sour cream. Eggs are light and fluffy. Coffee is steep at $3 with no refills, but well worth it.

    The East Village classic brunch. Excellent pancakes, Dutch-style (crunchy edges, fluffy middle with in season fruit). Good value steak and eggs and sausages and oysters. Don't forget the bloody marys!

    The wait is usually long, but for perfectly done traditional brunch items (scrambled eggs, hash browns, etc) this spot has the ambience and the recipes. One of the best in the hood

    Dishes are rustic or downright simple (the famed sardines and Triscuits remain a staple), but solid. Brunch is a classic in its own right, but be prepared for the wait.

    The chicken liver canneloni are out of control. The pan sauce on the pigeon is similarly incredible. Even the shrimp toast is awesome. Prune makes you hate sharing.

    Bar seating is a great way to shorten your wait and watch the bartenders make those famous bloodies; which, by the way, come with shorty beer chasers.
