  1. Everything I have had at Prune is great. Their eggs are cooked perfectly IMO and the bacon is really yummy. Try to get there early or be prepared to wait.

      it opens at 11am? so should we get there 10:45 or so?

        If it is nice out, I'd say 10:30-10:45 and you should be okay. Enjoy!

    2. Brunch at Prune is very good but by no means revelatory. I'd go elsewhere and skip the wait.

      1. where would suggest instead? i'm looking for something serving a little different than your normal brunch fare? also, we want good drinks.

          I'm not sure what you mean by a little different than your normal brunch fare, but some of the places I like are Danal, good, 9th Street Market (although there is a wait there...), Five Points (can reserve), Jane (although last meal was a little sub-par), Deborah, Extra Virgin, Westville (there's a wait there too...),... I'm blanking on others.

        2. I haven't been in a while, but I've enjoyed brunch at Good Enough to Eat on Amsterdam Avenue - old fashioned breakfasts with homemade strawberry jam - delicious! Also, my family tried brunch this past weekend at Five Points and gave it a BIG thumbs up. They are still raving about it a few days later!

            good enough to eat is not what im looking for...i mean a brunch that offers some slightly more adventurous options... from what i could see prune has some interesting items....sausages and oysters, spicy stewed chick peas...
            that's what i mean by a different kind of brunch...

              I forgot Maroons. They have some interesting southern/Jamaican menu items.

                The sausages and oysters are definitely different and very delicous. The bloodymarys are also fantastic.

            2. You have to wait in line (outside) at GETO too. Cookshop takes reservations online. I went Sunday and loved it. Great espresso martini that was really a breakfast type drink vs. a cloying dessert type.
