"Käsekuchen: Creamy Quark Cheesecake, Crostata Crust & Cranberry Kirsch Sauce. Our dessert menu at Proof is shaping up nicely for the season! Each dessert represents a global, yet curated dish that includes some type of “proof” in it [Kirsch in the sauce!] & this dish pairs extremely well with a Brachetto D’Acqui. It’s been fun to have the talented @#ladychef"

"Today at @cheesemonsterdc & our Sommeliers- our team worked together to create four beautiful grazing boards with the perfect flight pairings [a sparkling, white wine, rose & red wine board]. With housemade charcuterie & compotes, speciality cheeses, assorted accoutrements 😍 I don’t know about you, but this is exactly what I would love to do after a long day! Hope you’ll join us with some friends and see for yourself 🍷 🧀 🍖"
