Proof + Pantry to Open August 27 in One Arts Plaza

One Arts Plaza will welcome a new tenant on August 27. Proof +Pantry, a production of Misery Loves Company Restaurant Group, will open the doors to a restaurant with “pantry,” a seasonal menu of global cuisine, and “proof,” a list of carefully curated cocktails. The talent behind the business is Michael Martensen (Cedars Social, Smyth) and Sal Jafar II (co-founder of Driftwood).

The culinary team is an added plus: executive chef Kyle Mc Clelland will be joined by sous chef Brian Bui.

Here are a few details:

The beverage menu is organized by proof: No Proof (Peach Shrub), Low Proof (dry Sherry), and High Proof (Strawberry Cardamom Highland Tequila).

The food menu is organized by category: Soil (baby radishes), Land (lamb belly), Sea (Raclette tarts with smoked salmon roe), and Bulk (items to share.)

The space formerly known as The Commissary has been redesigned into an “industrial chic rustic pantry lined with shelving, weathered metals, distressed, wood accents, and tile.”

Here are the menus:

    Six months — tops.

    I agree

    Y’all are seriously underestimating these guys. They know their stuff and the food will be awesome.

    These guys have been involved in most of my favorite restaurants in town. They have a knack for making food and drink both delicious and accessible. Proof + Pantry will be open 7 days/week, open late, reasonable price point, 10 minutes from my house, and smack in the middle (ok, the end) of the arts district. I’ll see you there.

    I agree too.

    Any drink specials? What about drink specials. What are their happy hour times? Can we make a reservation with you now or do we have to call the restaurant.
