About This Project
Prohibition, a new restaurant and lounge, in midtown in the former George’s Kitchen space. Taking a cue from its name, the place will have a Chicago speakeasy vibe, with servers dressed in newsboy caps and ties, à la 1930s.
Classic cocktails will be made with fresh fruits, individual mixers (no soda guns), and quality bitters. The drinks menu, featuring quality spirits, will be pared down to about a dozen selections from the Prohibition era.
The food, by the way, is an eclectic mix of favorites with an emphasis on small plates for sharing. Although the menu hasn’t been finalized (and prices are not yet available), a preliminary rundown of dishes includes char-grilled octopus, escargots, lobster truffle macaroni and cheese, chorizo croquettes, beef carpaccio, and hummus.
Dinner-size entrées include steak frites, slow-roasted short rib, Wagyu skirt steak, and pan-roasted salmon with couscous and vegetables.
