DC Spotlight: Dinner at Proof

Vegetarians who also are wine lovers will fall in with love Proof, a romantic wine bar located in DC's Penn Quarter/Chinatown neighborhood.  

Proof is the first of a trio of first-class sister restaurants that also include Estadio and Doi Moi (read my write-ups of the those two here and here).  Although Proof does not (yet) have a separate vegetarian menu like its sister restaurants, it always offers a number of hearty meat-free appetizers, salads, and cheese plates, in addition to several tasty side dishes.  All three restaurants are featured on the Washington, DC Restaurants page of this website.

Proof's dinner menu changes a little each season, but fortunately for me, my favorite vegetarian entree -- the napoleon of crispy tofu, wild mushrooms, and spring vegetables -- is a year-round staple.

TIP:  This place books up well in advance, so make your reservations early, especially if you want to dine there on the weekend.  And don't forget to try the wine!
