Great cocktails and good wine list, but a really fun menu with small plates, salads, etc. We had a party of five and just may have enjoyed about everything on the menu. In East Village and this one is a must! Oh yeah, the deserts...More

Heard about this place through a foodie friend of mine. Had no idea the chef patron is a bit of a celeb but I now know why. We headed straight out to here from arriving at our hotel a bit jaded from flight (and having...More

I made a reservation here based on the recommendation of my cousin, a former NY chef, and based on the recent Finalist nomination for James Beard Best chef category. The restaurant is a small hole-in-the-wall kind of place, with a dozen or so tiny tables...More

Prune is tiny enough that I threatened to overturn the other tables when I edged into my seat. The patrons were an interesting mix of hipster and family and were polite enough to listen in on my and my companion's conversation without entering in. Mostly...More

They call it lamb stew, but they could call it cassoulet and no one would have ground for complaint. And, yes, there is Carignan on the winelist. My beloved had the mussels, and pronounced them excellent. Five stars for sure.

Small nice place. Good food. Good cooktell (very good negroni). Service is kind. Reservation in mandatory due to the fact the restaurant is quite small. My only complaint would be that it's quite noisy so I don't suggest for business event.

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

the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
