    The steak and eggs are suuuuuper rich and it comes with a half plate of hash browns. Tbh I prefer Jack’s Wife Frieda, but the Bloody Bullshot is pretty perfect 👌🏽

    Always a treat. Gabrielle's quirky takes on classic dishes. This time had the Shrimp w/anchovy butter to start. Be sure to mop up all the sauce with the good bread!

    Good brunch dishes, and an elaborate Bloody Mary menu. They don't take reservations for brunch, so be preparedto wait...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!
