A Penn Quarter favorite, Proof is the epitome of hospitality. This chic restaurant offers Chef Haidar Karoum’s seasonal, modern American menu. Sommelier Morgan Fausett has put together a 1,000-bottle strong wine list, and at any given time has at least 40 by-the-glass selections. Find a space inside in one of the window booths or linger under the umbrellas outside, but don’t leave before you’ve indulged in Karoum’s pan-fried soft-shelled crabs.
