Proof on Main Restaurant Review

: Proof is the 21C Museum Hotel's restaurant and, as is the case with the bedrooms, bar and foyers, the dining room doubles as exhibition space for a rotating collection of works by living artists. The menu is contemporary with traditional Kentucky touches, and a little edgy, too. Executive chef Mike Wajda presents appetizers such as smoked Kentucky catfish dip and bison meatballs with onion gravy bone marrow bread. Guests also have the option of composing tasting platters of charcuterie (rabbit terrine, house chorizo, etc.) and local cheeses. Continue with diver scallops with asparagus, mushrooms, cauliflower and bison marmalade or the Woodland Farm hog chop with grilled favas, boiled peanuts, mint and chorizo. For dessert, options may include strawberry-rhubarb crostata with goat cheese gelato and almond streusel. A notable wine list supports the menu. And be sure to take time, either before or after dinner, for an expertly crafted cocktail in the adjoining bar, a member of Louisville's Urban Bourbon Trail.
