After a cocktail I always get the octopus starter with a flight of bourbons. A beet salad followed (amazing) and next was the Bison Burger. Shared a plate of local cheeses. Delightful. Service impeccable, food delicious and the bar is fantastic.

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.

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.
