Gabrielle Hamilton opened this crowd pleaser in October 1999. Prune is open for dinner nightly and brunch Saturday and Sunday at 10 with a line starting at 9:30.
My Bloody Mary was filled with fresh horseradish, and square ice cubes, Love. We were ready to pig out after being seated by the most friendly staff. Of course, we wanted everything on the menu. I am an Eggs Benedict addict which I always order with extra hollandaise. This was also served with the best potatoes rosti that I have ever put in my mouth. My son Trent ordered the Monte Cristo, a triple decker ham, turkey and swiss cheese sandwich, custard-style battered, deep fried with fried eggs and red currant jelly. My daughter McCall, of course, ordered the Dutch Style Pancakes which is one large pancake, cooked in the oven, with blueberries served with Canadian bacon, sour cream, and powdered sugar. We started with a fresh ricotta, drizzled with honey, toasted pine nuts and fresh raspberries, served with a semi sweet shortcake biscuit. Even the iced tea was off the charts. It had a little almond flavor and they served it with a homemade simple syrup. This was our last meal in NYC. I will definitely pay another visit to this over the top brunch spot. A little note, in New York, they don’t serve alcohol on Sunday until noon so plan accordingly.
