Little Prince Brunch

After a month of Pinning and bridal magazine perusing and a weekend of back-to-back dress appointments surrounded by my dearest friends and family, I said yes! I’m no bridezilla, but I am plagued with indecision, which might be worse. I tried on everything from princess ball gowns to flowing, wannabe-hippie dresses, hoping I’d just “know” like everyone says.

Turns out, everyone was right, because at the fifth location there was no question we’d found a winner.

It was a wonderful but exhausting weekend, and I was happy to seal my decision with a hearty brunch in Soho. The snow began just as we reached the restaurant, quickly covering the streets in a blanket of white and making Little Prince even more appealing.

I had no problem making reservations despite Little Prince being such a hotspot, and they were very accommodating to our last minute shift in numbers. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive from the start.

We started with a round of Cyndi Laupers for the table, made with prosecco, campari, and blood orange. It was a perfect way to toast the day and my decision, but the drink was a tad bitter for my personal liking.

My mom and Julie decided to share the farro salad with roasted cauliflower, vadouvan, pine nuts, currants. The flavor was amazing, but for $15 this salad should have been double the size. It was more like a side portion than an entree. However, the flavor made up for the size and was really top notch.

My mom and Julie also shared the French onion soup burger with gruyère, caramelized onion, dijon, and hand-cut fries. This burger was the perfect amount of juice and flavor, and the subtle Dijon flavor added something really special. I wouldn’t say this burger tasted like French onion soup but I love anything with caramelized onions and good cheese, so this was still a hit.

I settled on the short rib hash with fried eggs, root vegetables and Pecorino cheese, which was incredible. The pickled onions topping added a really nice zest to the bite, and the short rib was perfectly cooked. I absolutely loved this dish and everyone at the table who tried a bite had order envy.

Christine ordered the bistro eggs, which was a simple scramble with créme fraîche, served with toast, bacon, and greens. She enjoyed this straightforward dish, which was just what she was looking for.

My sister ordered the omelette with spinach, goat cheese and greens. This was very basic as expected, but still tasty.

The Bitches say: B+. Little Prince had some standouts (i.e. farro salad and short rib hash), which we’d return for, and some other normal but well-executed classics, which we wouldn’t write home about.
