I had read Blood, Bones and Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton a while back so when the opportunity to have a meal came my way I have to say I was not sure what to expect. In all honesty I did not find her story all that compelling. Prune is not a huge space. I think I counted maybe 35 seats.... More

I also oredered fried rabbit with... More

Tried dinner here, was early enough to get in without reservation. Food was great: novel ingredients and combinations, subtle tastes, but still hearty! Nice

Was taken there by a friend who lives in New York, would never have found it otherwise. Two sittings for brunch, be there on time with your entire party or you won't be seated.

Must try this brunch. Period. The bloody mary's are unreal and the ricotta starter. Yum! The staff are phenomenal and atmosphere perfect for a Sunday brunch.

I love Prune for dinner and even more now for brunch. Simple delicious options in a tiny tiled and mirrored bistro, very french feeling if I'm allowed to say that having never been in France. Great service (though note NY does not serve alcohol before noon on sundays) and great people watching. Be prepared for a wait on the sidewalk... More

After reading the book by Gabrielle Hamilton "Blood Butter and Bone" I couldn't wait to eat at Prune. After we found out that my daughter Canadian film maker/Journalist Chandler Levack's short film "Lunchbox Loser" was accepted into the Manhattan Film Festival and that we were going to NYC for the screening... I hit the phone to make a reservation. We... More

Head down to Prune for a great meal! Gabrielle Hamilton delivers on a new spring/summer menu and has very knowledgeable wait staff to help you pull together a perfect meal. Between my husband and a friend we managed to sample most of the small menu and it was terrific. Highlights were the melt-in-your-mouth lamb chops, her salad with beets and... More

Great food, but the Bloody Marys at brunch (which they have a full menu of) was a bit underwhelming. I was really hoping for a more exciting bloody mary being that they specialize in it.

Dinner with my wife and son, who arranged for it as I was raving about the book "Blood, Bones and Butter ..." The place surprised me as I left the sidewalk and entered a small French or Italian Bistro. It was intimate and very pleasant. We started with the marrow which we spread on the charred sourdough and topped with... More
