Leavenworth's new wine bar, Prost, is now open.
Prost, a German exclamation for Cheers! or To Your Health is a common expression used as friends gather and toast one another over a drink. Prost is located at 911 Commercial Street, next to its companion store, Idlewild, the new pizza parlor in town. A small area in front invites outdoor enjoyment of your food and beverage.
Prost carries a wide variety of wines from all over the world, and prices vary from inexpensive to expensive. As most wine aficionados know, price is not always an indication of quality, so you will find wines to suit your pocketbook or your mood. When you go in and view the shelves, you will most likely find old friends in the selection, and new ones worth a try.
The staff is friendly and helpful, and very knowledgeable about the wines. While not a restaurant as such, Prost has a selection of tempting small plates - tapas - created to complement the wines.
Prost is open six days; closed Monday. Hours: 3-9 Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday and 3-10 Friday and Saturday.
