NY Mysteries April 24, 2020


If you feel sorry for yourself, join the line. Then read Gabrielle Hamilton’s account of the life and temporary death of her delightful, unique, sophisticated, romantic little restaurant in the East Village, Prune.  Hamilton’s evocative essay is in the April 24 New York Times. I loved that place. Ever go into a restaurant and feel both at home and excited? That’s what Prune did for me. Why hadn’t I been there in years? Life, I guess. I can’t remember specific items on the original menu except for skate wing which was delicious. Going to the Prune website is like visiting a friend on her/his last legs. The photos of the beautiful, simply arranged food bring it all back. Sob.
