Located in the heart of the Flatiron District, Prandial is a charming newcomer to the area. Once you step inside, you will be greeted by a rustic bar serving refreshingly delicious cocktails, like the Prandial Standard, which is made with Russian Standard Vodka, fresh lime juice, cucumber and mint. Weekdays at the bar feature happy hour from 4-7pm with half price beer, wine, and house cocktails. You can also order some unique dishes from their bar menu while you booze.
Venture deeper inside for a rustic and elegant restaurant experience with hardwood floors and leather banquettes. Master chef Pierre Rougey displays a progressive American menu for diners, offerings comfortable classics such as Roasted Chicken served with broccoli, potato gratin, and rosemary jus and Pressed Short Ribs with roasted beets, potatoes, zucchini, and carrots. The main dining room serves as a great spot to impress your date and even with the delicious entrees, you will need to sample dessert. Pastry Chef Abbie White does an amazing job recreating classics and introducing new, innovative selections. For instance, it doesn't get much better than a chocolate chip ice cream sandwich, house made root beer float, or even a banana upside down tart. It's like reliving your childhood favorites with an adult twist.
Additionally, the back portion of the dining room serves as a private event space with sliding glass doors to cordon off the space. Perfect for birthdays, anniversaries, and any fun occasion the back room has an old-fashioned blackboard that slides down to reveal a HDTV and there is plenty of dining space for patrons to enjoy. Not to mention, the frosted windows can be opened during warm weather for a relaxing atmosphere.
If you're looking for a lively event space, a romantic date night, or just a nice meal among friends, Prandial caters to every crowd, and will please them all. Don't overlook this great spot!
