We went to Prepkitchen for my wife's 50th birthday party. We had a large party of 12. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us and make my wife feel special. additionally the food was fantastic and the service was impeccable.

We had a very large group here so we were given a fixed menu, but I can honestly say everything was superb. The Charcuterie board was fantastic, the roasted chicken was outstanding. Its rare to eat at a restaurant that is even willing to roast a whole bird,let alone do it so well for such a large group. I will... More

I recently dined here with my co-workers. The cocktails were different/creative and pretty tasty. Bread is provided, and the beet salad was delicious as a sharing appetizer. The menu is quite small, and I ordered the mussels and fries entree. While the mussels were much larger than I'm used to on the east coast, the sauce they were in was... More

The PrepKitchen is housed on India St, number 1660 on the 2nd floor, in Little India. The interior is uniquely styled very 'shabby-chic' with lots of reclaimed wood posts, old doors & windows, fences and chicken coop nets. The menu is American and the food is amazingly sublime and most satisfactorily scrumptous.... smoked burata, mussels, steak, roasted cauliflower, pork chop,... More

A great ambiance complemented by good food and excellent service. Every first dish looked very appetizing and it was definitely hard to choose. Overall fairly priced.

Got up way too early for brunch before CRSSD Festival this past weekend, and found this place was up and able to seat 10 of us at 10:30am. Decor: Lots of light with huge windows all around the place with hipster decor and seating. Drinks: Along with the classic brunch options, they have a great variety of different options. Try...

We were looking for a place for dinner in Little Italy on the Saturday of the President's Day weekend. Of course, the area was really busy. We stumbled upon the Prepkitchen on the brilliant assertion that a restaurant on the second floor wouldn't be as busy. That logic didn't hold, but we were able to find seats at the bar.... More

Had lunch around 3:30 in the afternoon. The dining room was not open but the bar was serving and they let us know it was happy hour. HAPPY HOUR FOR WHO: THE HOUSE THAT'S WHO. The happy hour menu prices are the same price as usual. $12.95 for a beet salad. No complaints on the food. Service is another story.... More
