Food and drink
I realize that Prune’s menu sounds almost innocuous on paper, with its radishes with butter and salt and deviled eggs among the starters, and beef pot au feu and farmhouse chicken with vinegar for entrees, but I think the secret is in the seasonal and handpicked ingredients which make even the simpler dishes absolute knock outs. Brunch is also a highlight - try the eggs Benedict or “Dutch-style” pancakes.
Painted wood tables are packed into a warm, inviting space.
This is serious food, but the staff are relaxed and unpretentious.
Even though it’s noisy, East 1st runs at an angle past a little park, giving it a neighborhood feel.
Main dishes from US$8 and a three-course meal without wine is about US$40 per person.
Tables to book
This is a tiny spot, so they are all great.
