Alfred Prunier (1848 – 1925) was a French chef and restaurant owner.
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.
French artist Mathurin Méheut designed the table service and interior stained glass.
