No sooner had we noted the proliferation of prohibition-oriented bars in The Valley than we came face-to-face with another, less subtle number opening soon in Encino. Named Prohibition Burgers and Beers, the establishment takes the gangster lean a little further by using the font from The Godfather and even putting an AK in place of its “T.” Do we sense the involvement of our Mafiya bratva here? The soft-opening will be announced in the next week or so, according to its website, which has some appetizing photos, spells meat wrong (“meet”), and distinctively leaves out a few critical “A’s” and “The’s,” as in “Prohibition is a Bar in Encino area” and “you are invited to make reservation.” Hmm, almost sounds scarier than we once thought Troyka to be. Davai! Davai!
Prohibition Burgers and Beer, 17620 Ventura Blvd. Encino.
