Food is the Focus. Wine is the Passion.

Dear friends of Proof,

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Proof’s last day of service will be Saturday, February 2nd.  

Above all, we want to thank our dedicated staff and you - our wonderful guests - for your years of patronage and support. Proof was opened as our founder's love letter to this city, expressed through food and wine. We have deeply valued being part of this neighborhood for over 10 years.

Although we are unable to continue Proof in its current location, we look forward to continuing to welcome guests into our sister establishments - Doi Moi and Destination Wedding.

To mark our last weeks of service, we will be adding several classic dishes to our Restaurant Week menu and offering wine specials in our final week as a thank you to you, our guests. You can find updated menus here on our website and on our Facebook page.

With great appreciation, 
The Team at Proof

Corkage
The wine list at Proof is an homage to our founder, Mark Kuller. His cellar was always full of old Burgundy, Rhone, Bordeaux, and California cult classics. We are honored to offer some of his impressive collection alongside our extensive offerings that include other major regions, producers, varietals, and vintages. Our Sommelier team works diligently to procure wines from smaller producers, who farm organically and biodynamically. You can view our wine list here. We are happy to accommodate outside bottles for a $40 corkage fee.

Please contact our sommelier team directly to make special arrangements.
