We knew about this place thanks to Anthony Bourdain on No Reservations. He had an episode where he was eating bone marrow and it looked so drool worthy. I attempted to make reservations for Prune but failed because the times they offered didn't fit into my schedule. J was just so lucky this time.
The restaurant is small but it doesn't mean it's not friendly.
|Roasted Bone Marrow|
The reason why we came. The marrow was so fatty and gelatinous. It felt like a sin to be eating this but I rather go to hell being once satisfied than never. The tasted bread with marrow and a dash of sea salt was amazing, and if that was great enough, throw a piece of parsley in your mouth and you're in bliss heaven.
Ended with a drinking dessert. I'm not sure what the name of this was but it was so foam-y good. The flavor was lemon with lemon vodka, the texture of the dessert was a cross between ice cream, sorbet, and frozen yogurt. So good!
Cherries to cleanse your palate.
It's a great homey restaurant that can satisfy your hungry. Majority of the dishes are types where you would make at home but they give a little twist and showcase it in a fancy way. Either way, the food here is quite spectacular. I wouldn't go anywhere else for my birthday.
