We're building a mystery.

Just kidding, it's only a website.


If you're looking for Toast Kitchen and Wine Bar, you've come to the right place. Kind of.


We're still at Baum Blvd. We still have great food, stellar service, and a bar you can cozy up to. So why the name change?

With Proof, we aim to show you what’s in our hearts, on our minds, and most importantly, filling our plates. Chef Mark Samson does his heritage proud with craveable dishes with a hint of Southern twang. Bartenders Jonathan and Dawn present an innovative cocktail list, eclectic beer selection, and a wine program that won’t quit. And our dynamic front of house staff is here to turn Proof into your new go-to spot for drinks, dining, and all the fun stuff in between.

Frequently Asked Questions



We have a limited number of tables available for online and call-ahead reservations upstairs. Downstairs is first come, first serve only. If your party has mobility issues and would like to make a reservation, we will take downstairs reservations on a case-by-case basis. Parties of 5 or more are strongly encouraged to make reservations. If you try to reserve online and can’t find your desired dining time, give us a call, but please consider: 6pm – 8pm is the busiest dining time in Pittsburgh. That’s when we fill up first, and when the most people will be walking in.


Street parking is available in front of the restaurant on Baum Blvd. There is metered parking on the restaurant side of Baum Blvd and unmetered parking across the street. There is also parking available on the nearest cross streets, Morewood and Cyprus. We do not have a parking lot, and we do not have valet. We encourage larger groups dining with us to consider carpooling, or utilizing a ride service such as taxis, Lyft, or Uber.


Proof boasts a full bar, dynamic wine list, and select beers on draft and in bottles. We do allow BYOB, with a $20 corkage fee.
