Proof + Pantry
One Arts Plaza restaurant is another concept by the Misery Loves Company restaurant group, of Madrina fame. P+P places equal emphasis on creative drinks, conceived by cocktail king Michael Martensen, and the food, a menu of progressive, pricey American fare. There's a $77 rib-eye, with rapini, asparagus, and pearl onions, and an edgy bone marrow dish topped with onion marshmallows and tomato jam. There's something to be said for the restaurant's winning formula, which has succeeded in a location that has failed for others.
