Thanksgiving-- Cafe at Country or Prune? Please help!

I've made reservations at both Cafe at Country and Prune for Thursday. Both have prix fixe meals for around $65, and the menus look great, but I cant decide! Any advice to tip the balance would be much appreciated. Thank you!

  1. I haven't been to Prune, but I have had dinner at the Cafe at Country, and the food was excellent. It's a large, attractive space with tables arranged around a large bar and fairly comfortable seating. From what I've read about Prune, it's a small place, and seating is extremely cramped. Depending on the kind of ambiance you prefer, perhaps that will help you to make a decision.

    1. I'd agree with RGR. Prune is, for me, way too tight a space to really enjoy Thanksgiving dinner. Some might find that cozy, I'm in a different camp.

      1. Cafe at Country is one of those rooms that screams "Welcome to Winter" for me. The food's good, too. I think it would be lovely for Thanksgiving. That said, the food's very good at Prune.
