It's so difficult to say this was my favourite as Russ & Daughters in LES in Manhattan was wonderful too, but here felt very much a locals place, and it was wonderful. You might need to wait, and we arrived at 11, and waited about 20 minutes. Get here for opening if you can, but the wait is worth it.... More

Parisienne style, not so big but very cosy. Brunch at Prune is very good. Original bloody Mary and delicious eggs benedict.

I only have good things to say about Prune. The servers were delightful, the drinks were good and the food was amazing. Worth going - but I would recommend making a reservation as it can be quite busy at times. The pork-fennel sausage was to die for. The mackerel and the pasta kerchief was excellent too.

I spent six days in New York City to celebrate my birthday. The only place I wanted to eat was Prune. I had seen it featured on tv by one of my heroes Anthony Bourdain who told the world it was the chefs choice. The place to eat well. I could not wait. As a surprise my GF rang ahead... More

I can't really write a rational review of this restaurant. I read Gabrielle Hamilton's book Blood, Bones & Butter several years ago and have been wanting to go to her restaurant Prune ever since. I finally made it a few weeks ago. I entered swooning; I left swooning. It met my every expectation. I will go back when I return... More

We were recommended this place for brunch and loved it. Given a Bloody Mary menu on arrival and the place was packed. Feel good atmosphere- we didn't have to queue but I think we were lucky...

Always wanted to visit after buying cookbook for my husband. I was surprised how small it was. We felt so cozy and comfortable. We went on a Sunday night at 6. Had reservations but there were tables available. Service was attentive and kind. The cocktails were spot on. My 12 year old daughter had the pasta kerchief dish and ate... More

One of (if not THE) loudest dins of any restaurant I've visited. Four of us couldn't hear a thing one another said unless we screamed; other diners seemed to do the same. Seats about 35, plus six bar stools. Quarters are cramp: Probably no more than 40x18. Dishes are creative (e.g., oxtails and sweetbreads) none more so than the "Lemon... More

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.
