Restaurant Review: Prohibition

I thought I’d create a new section of this blog and highlight local restaurants to help guests plan their trips to New Plymouth.

We visited the new Prohibition on the day after it opened and were truly blown away by their burgers.  So much so, that Rod was given the wrong burger and ended up with a Chicken burger and he still raved about it!  (Those of you who know how much of a carnivore that Rod is, know what a bold statement that is.)  I had a cheeseburger in lettuce cups (nice that they offer them,) and the flavors were amazing.  Kumera fries with aioli were nice and crunchy.   A solid wine and craft beer list rounded out the offering.

The service (aside from the chicken burger incident,) was fabulous.  We were greeted with smiles even though we were very late for our reservation, and you could tell the staff had excitement for the food they were presenting.

We sat downstairs, where there are scooters for seats in the front windows, but there is a large dining room upstairs that I’d love to try.  They are open late which is perfect for our guests who drive in to town hungry as so many restaurants close early here.

It’s just the perfect addition to the New Plymouth restaurant scene, and I am already craving another cheeseburger!  Well done!
