There is a new restaurant in Midtown making its name under the guise of a 1920s speakeasy called Prohibition.
Sure, there’s a happening bar where you can watch games, a communal table perfect to getting to know new friends, and a lounge upstairs that will serve stiff drinks and potent cocktails from a bygone era, but the food might just be the most exciting thing there.
With small and large plates, (thankfully the small is not really small at all), there is a plethora of comfort-type foods. The Truffle Pasta is a winner as are the Wagyu Skirt Steak and Seared Scallops.
Everything lobster-related was a hit at our table, including the Lobster Croquettas, Lobster Pasta and the Lobster Cocktail.
Desserts were delish too, but we can imagine taking them upstairs after a great meal with friends to continue the fun in the bar-lounge setting.
Owner Shawn Shanazi has is trying to transport diners to another era – that of the twenties and thirties “in the most stylish manner imaginable.” We say, mission accomplished.
