Bernbach to Proof

Fritz Hahn at the Washington Post’s Going Out Gurus blog reports that former Bar Pilar head manager will be starting at Proof this July.

“Honestly, I didn’t leave Pilar for Proof,” Bernbach said today. “I didn’t expect to be back in a restaurant with this speed. But the opportunity presented itself and it seemed like a good fit. I’ve known everyone involved [with Proof] for quite a long time.”

I’ve never been to Proof, though that will obviously change in the foreseeable future.

Hahn asks the question all of Adam’s fans were surely thinking: will he revive the Tuesday Cocktail Sessions at Proof? Bernbach responds:

“There’s the possibility that I will do something along the lines of Cocktail Sessions, or have an omakase menu, but I don’t know what that’s going to be. Honestly, I just want to be involved in a restaurant with a great beverage program.”

I’m sure whatever Adam and the team at Proof decide to do will be great. I’m just happy that he’s found a new home and it’s in DC.
