How does dinner with a side of history sound?
Prohibition at the Caverns is a unique new restaurant that will give you a one-of-a-kind dining experience in the heart of Mansfield’s history. Built between 1850 and 1865, they were used during the Civil War era by German Brewers who needed a place to ferment lager beer.
Lacking modern refrigeration, the brewers needed to construct the underground sandstone caverns along with ice to control the temperature of the beer, keeping it at a cool 50 degrees. Now serving as a dining room, the caverns used to be accessed through a basement door in Smutzler & Lightenr brewery.
It’s taken years to restore the caverns, but the new dining experience is worth the wait. Prohibition at the Caverns has speakeasy vibes. The menu is high-end with elevated flavors and an option to include wine pairings.
A meal at The Caverns feels glamorous, and for good reason. The full experience will cost you $190 per person with wine pairings or $165 per person without wine pairings. But how often do you get to have a perfectly curated meal while you’re sitting in 19th-century caves?
Sample menu items include an egg with bacon cream, black walnut, and cauliflower, a goat cheese risotto, Peking goose, and more. Each course is perfectly paired with a variety of wines, from Prosecco to Vermentino.
Prohibition at the Caverns is located at the rear of 51, E 4th St, Mansfield, OH 44902. You can make a reservation, or view a sample menu, but visiting prohibitiondining.com.
