Beloved for its brunch, Prune has mastered homey cooking.  With only 30-seats and a scruffy French bistro look, Prune compensates for its lack of elbow room with the sweet breads and massive pancakes.  Lunch and dinner also do not disappoint.

“The other one I will trek to is Prune. Their lunch is great and the menu changes all the time. It’s totally seasonal.” – Pilar Guzman (Editor-in-Chief, Condé Nast Traveler)
