The toasted manti is a must have...the pork chops a milanese was also very very good.This restaurant is a little surprise tucked in 1st St in Soho. Dessert was a bit disappointing, though - almond ice cream was bland. It is necessary to reserve.

Been awhile since last meal, but did not disappoint. Dined on grilled brazini with green cabbage as side while spouse chose batter dipped pork chop with charred carrots and beets. Both were extraordinary especially the brazini skin in lemon with sea salt. Service remains hip with intimate atmosphere.

I liked the service, especially the charming bartender but the food was just not good. The Pork Chop Milanese was greasy and tasted like it was cooked in old oil. The branzino was overcooked. I'd wanted to eat here for a long time and I was SO disappointed. The passionate chef that wrote that wonderful book has left the building.

The brunch here is top-notch and it is no secret. You will often wait up to an hour for the privilege of dining here. Eggs benedict fantastic, the potatoes fantastic, the carbonara fantastic. I think you get the point.

I take no joy in writing a bad review. In fairness I try and find the good bits, so I'll start with that. My black rice and confit duck was passable. That's it. The non confit duck part of my dish was still quacking. Severely underdone and like chewing gum. We were given serrated knives but we both still struggled.... More

We've been hearing about Prune for years and finally went last week. Although it is small, does not have a very extensive menu and is not a very fancy place, no tablecloths, all the food was very flavorful and had big flavors. The deserts were very simple. We had the cold candied orange which was so refreshing that we went... More

When I lived in NY, I went to this place twice a month because all of their brunch/lunch meal were just perfect! My favorite was of course dutch pancake, which is everyone's favorite. I also loved carbonara and egg benedict. How I miss this place... I definitely go to prune whenever I go to NY. You might wait for over... More

Wanted to love it, but just didn't. It was a bit try hard. And some of the breakfast combinations just do not go together. Staff very friendly.

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
