When you walk into Prohibition Gastropub it has a nice and cozy feel and it truly seems to be a neighborhood gathering place. The bartender was so friendly and a lot of the customers seemed to be regulars. The staff is very friendly, attentive, and hard working. The space is a bit crowded but they make it work! If you want to get in and try their restaurant menu, be sure you call and make a reservation so you can avoid the long line crowded at the door waiting for a table.
For the First Course we tried the Crab Cake and Stuffed Arancini. This crab cake was one of my favorite parts of the meal. It was creamy and crunchy with a nice lemony kick. The stuffed arancini is exactly what it is described as. A cheesy, risotto ball with mozzarella, bacon, and onion. If you are into cheese and rice (which who isn’t), then this is your thing. They also offer a caesar salad on their first course restaurant week menu.
Crab Cake | Blue crab mixed with a special blend of spices and seasoning, served with a mango beurre blanc.
| *Upgrade to two crab cakes $4
| *Add a second arancini $4
For the Second Course we went with the Al Capone and Grilled Salmon. If a restaurant points out something on their menu as “…. that made us famous”, you bet we are going to try that! The beef in this burger is infused with fresh coffee grounds which allows for maximum juiciness, and it is true! Our hands were dripping after the first bite. On top of this juicy patty they add a fried egg, lettuce, tomato, onion, cheddar cheese, and candied bacon. Yes, candied bacon. This burger was smaller than we thought it would be but it ended up being the perfect portion with the first and third course.
We also tried the grilled salmon which was really tasty. It didn’t have a fishy flavor at all and it was a thin piece on top of mashed potatoes and vegetables dressed in a lemon butter. My favorite thing about this dish was that the potatoes had a crispy edge on the bottom like they had been thrown on the grill for a little bit. It added a lot of flavor to your typically bland mashed potatoes. Also on the second course restaurant week menu is their blue cheese lasagna. If only we could have tried all three…. We noticed the majority of people around us ordering this dish and I was BLUE with envy. (jokes)
Al Capone | The burger that made us famous! Ground beef infused with fresh coffee grounds and blended with our secret blend of spices. Coffee grounds = juicy burgers. Grilled to order, and served up on a brioche bun topped with lettuce, tomato, onion, our house candied bacon and cheddar cheese, finished with dirty ketchup and a fried egg.
| *Add two poppers $2
Grilled Salmon | Fresh salmon grilled to perfection, served with Duchess potatoes and seasonal vegetables, finished with a lemon honey compound butter.
Lastly, for the third course we tried their Whiskey Chocolate Mousse and Creme Brulee. This mousse was rich and the perfect cap to my meal. It is served in a tall shot glass and just what I wanted after a juicy burger and fries. The whiskey flavor is hardly noticeable so don’t shy away if you are afraid of that.
Like I said earlier, these portions are small but that is what you get when you want three courses for $19. It was plenty of food for us, just smaller than your typical restaurant serving. Instead of eating until you can barely move, these dishes allow you to finish your plate while still feeling comfortable. Prohibition Gastropub did a fantastic job with their restaurant menu and we look forward to returning soon to enjoy their relaxed ambiance, friendly service, and more of their impressive menu items.
Whiskey Chocolate Mousse | Chef Leonetti’s favorite. Each week we infuse our chocolate mousse with a new whiskey.
| *Enjoy a glass of whiskey served over a gentleman cube to bring out the flavor in the mousse. $5
Crème brûlée | Fresh custard with a decadent carmelized crust.
Other options on the Restaurant Week Menu:
First Course: Caesar Salad | Crisp romaine tossed in our housemade Caesar dressing, fresh croutons, and grated Parmesan. Served in an Asiago cheese basket.
| *Add chicken $2, steak $3, or prawns $4
Second Course: Blue Cheese Lasagna | A secret Leonetti recipe. Blue cheese, chicken, creamy garlic sauce and a slice of fresh sourdough.
Third Course: Beer Float | Enjoy ice cream served with a rotating draft such as Dark Persuasion German Chocolate Stout.
Keep eating, Spokane.
