Prandial describes themselves as being reminiscent of a wandering New York Apartment. From their website:
“People move to the bar for hand crafted cocktails, which are perfect blends of old-world tradition and modern day twists. Individual boxes of warm, herb-toasted nuts are passed around. A waiter emerges from the kitchen with a carving board piled high with house made pigs in blankets sourced from a farm in Upstate NY, served with grainy mustard.There are savory caramelized onion tartlets to be washed down with a Syrah. Someone order sliver pate, dense with shallots and faint with cognac. It’s served with raisin walnut bread and a glass of chilled Veltliner.”
