Proof Stays Up Late

Ever heard a bigger-city transplant complain about how early DC goes to bed? Well, times they are a changing, and staying out late just got tastier.

Aiming to satisfy after-hours appetites, Proof recently unveiled a late-night menu, served Thursday through Saturday from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.

Among the dishes on offer: drunken grilled cheese on brioche ($11), foie gras scrambled eggs with toasted brioche and truffle butter ($11), a spicy meatball sandwich with marinara and buffalo mozzarella ($12), and pictured above, ahi tuna tartare ($13).

Watch your back, jumbo slice ...

Can't WAIT to try the grilled cheese and meatball sandwich. Wonder what a G8 dog is, though... Any idea?

Amanda said...

From owner Mark Kuller:
The G8 dog is a 1/4 pound all beef Kosher Hot Dog made by Best Provisions in Chicago - for my money the best hot dogs in the world. G8 is a reference to our location at 8th and G (and to the economic summit).

Ah, got it. Guess it would have been a pretty wonky name for a hot dog if it was a geopolitical reference.
