Tiny, well-lit Prune is still as popular as it was the day it opened. Gabrielle Hamilton’s French mother developed this fearless chef’s palate early on: Expect creative dishes like Manila clams with hominy and smoked paprika butter, and roasted suckling pig with pickled tomatoes, black-eyed-pea salad and chipotle mayo. This is the area’s go-to brunch spot, so beware: The wait for a table can stretch over an hour.

We came for brunch after hearing about the 11 different kinds of Bloody Mary's and I have to say I was a little disappointed. I asked for bacon in my drink since they have it on the menu and I was told that wasn't possible, but they could do beef jerky instead so I did that, but it wasn't what I wanted - in fact it was totally gross I immediately took it out and didn't touch it again. Maybe the brunch menu was too small for our tastes? The huevos rancheros was good but really the only thing on the menu that looked good (beyond like pancakes and ricotta). My boyfriend got the "egg en cocotte" and it was very strange. I'd be down to try it again, maybe for dinner but I'm conflicted as it wasn't a cheap brunch.
