Went this past Sunday for brunch at Prasino. We felt it was underwhelming in both food and service. While I applaud anyplace offering veggie sausages (and they were spicy and delicious), my creme anglais french toast was dry and showed no evidence of the egg and cream bath it was supposed to have, and did not appear to have been made from brioche as billed (looked like white bread to me). Service was hilariously amateurish. I asked for home fries and was told "We don't serve fried food here." Got their own version of hash browns (made with some weird chili flavoring not to my taste).
My son ordered the sesame tuna ahi salad, at which point the waiter asked "What time is it?" We were dumbfounded at his question, since the menu listed the salad, but the waiter thought for some reason it wasn't salad o' clock.
I'll take Elly's (North at Clark) over Prasino every time.
