Alfred Prunier (1848 – 1925) was a French chef and restaurant owner.

In 1872 Prunier opened his first Parisian restaurant on Rue Duphot that bore his name (today called “Goumard”). Specialized in seafood (lobster, caviar, oysters..) and grilled entrées, the quality of the cuisine made the restaurant a success, attracting famous writers such as Oscar Wilde and local aristocrats including Russian royalty.

In 1924 Prunier’s son Émile opened another Prunier restaurant on the avenue Victor Hugo in Paris, which attracted writers such as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway or french novelist Marcel Proust.

After Prunier’s death in 1925, his daughter Simone took over the business and opened a third restaurant in London. The second restaurant still operates, but the London restaurant closed in 1976.
