PROOF is a gathering place, your neighborhood spot where you can relax and enjoy time with friends and family in an upscale yet unpretentious environment. We strive to become a multi-generational restaurant and bar where memories are made and fondly remembered. PROOF takes inspiration from the world around us, sourcing what we can from farmers, ranchers, distillers, wine makers, brewers and artisans in and around the Treasure Valley. We firmly believe in community and will deliver an experience you are sure to remember.
PROOF’s owner Bryan Forcina is passionate about curating exceptional dining experiences at affordable prices. As the former general manager at Eureka in downtown Boise, Forcina watched the rapid growth in Meridian, Eagle, and Star and saw the need for a unique, upscale but approachable restaurant, the kind of place that could serve everything from business lunches to happy hour snacks to special occasion meals, at an affordable price. After graduating from the San Francisco Culinary Academy in 2000, Forcina spent several years working in San Francisco Bay Area high-end kitchens, then traveled to Europe to hone his culinary skills. Forcina, his wife, and their four children relocated to the Treasure Valley almost a decade ago. Forcina opened the Meridian Yard House as their Executive Kitchen Manager before serving as Executive Chef at Ruth’s Chris Boise location. Forcina is passionate about local ingredients, which he incorporates into unique flavor combinations in high-end entrees, gourmet salads, and craft pizzas. Forcina welcomes the opportunity to create a new, community-centered restaurant in the heart of Star.
