Village Voice's Description

This joint has got personality to spare: a friendly staff that seems like a museum of physical types, a small dining room filled with fiercely loyal regulars, and a quirky menu that runs from the inspired to the merely insane. Forgo the canned sardines and Triscuits in favor of the coriander-crusted smoked duck breast, sided with a strangely irresistible omelet filled with rye groats, or the humongous prawns dressed with anchovy butter;the crunchy heads are the best part. And though the osso bucco swamped in purple cabbage didn't quite kick ass (salt helps), the steamed and grilled artichoke paired with fried fava beans did.

    I’ve had MANY wonderful meals at Prune, but love to go for brunch for their numerous iterations of Bloody Marys with incredible garnishes. If you’ve got a party of four or more, ask for the only table

    ZOMG the Dutch Pancake with pear. Get it to share with the table..and pair it with one of their awesome Bloody's.

    This tiny restaurant packs them in at all hours. I was especially impressed by the brunch menu, which takes familiar foods and elevates the flavors. -Maria Hines, Top Chef

    Brunch is the highlight for this East Village classic, but don't expect an omelet - robust dishes like grilled merguez with oysters and nine kinds of Bloody Marys are de rigueur here!

    Go to Prune for brunch at 9:45 to beat the crowds. Order the prune juice, coffee, a bloody mary, and the deep-fried monte cristo sandwich or the Dutch pancake.
