So what if I’m jumping the gun.
The Traveler staff is putting the final touches on IT’s special guide to Inaugural D.C., scheduled to debut on this site in the coming weeks.
But today, I found out that one of my guide suggestions is offering a lunch special I couldn’t wait to share.
PROOF (775 G Street; +1 202 737 7663), my favorite nation’s capital resto, is serving a $12 bar lunch that includes a glass of wine and one of seven plates. And we’re not talking standard fare. Among the choices is a Wagyu steak and cheese sandwich with wild mushrooms, peppers, onions, jalapeno mayo and provolone. The wines are also a cut above, the likes of Austria’s Hofer Gruner Veltliner as well as other deeply flavored reds to write home about. I was told that the special bar lunch likely wouldn’t be offered on Inauguration Day itself, but will be available throughout the month. Hope to see you there!
