I had breakfast at Proof. The Eggs Benedict was delicious and I enjoyed the personal service my waiter gave me. I never had to ask for anything but I didn’t feel crowded by him. It was a pleasant experience.

Great bar with talented and interesting bartender (Oliver) If you are not a bourbon-only drinker- you might try this place. Interesting selection of craft cocktails that are not solely bourbon centric. Found the bar to be a great experience- good drinks- conversations and surroundings....

The restaurant, Proof and the hotel, 21c are all part of the museum complex. So your walk to the shared restroom is filled with art installations that change out regularly, there's also art in the bathrooms themselves.

Yes, we do have vegetarian and vegan options. There are also several items that can be modified so that they will fit those dietary restrictions.
