Set in a converted brick Victorian on a residential street, The Prune fronts as a simple neighbourhood restaurant. What a surprise, then, when chef Bryan Steele’s modernist creations arrive at the table. He reinvents a terrine as a roulade of tender chicken and quail accompanied by a slab of smoked foie gras and shards of bacon. Vegetarians are given a creative option in a spicy tamale made with poblano pepper, black beans and corn chip crumbs. Parsley angel food cake with rhubarb jelly and parsnip cream could easily read as a savoury dish but turns out to be a triumphant dessert. The wine list features countless bargains. Prix fixe from $49.
