For those looking for evidence that Miami Dolphins running back Ricky Williams is reformed, consider PROOF, his new health-conscious restaurant and lounge opening next month in the old Table 8 space at the Z Ocean Hotel. Williams, who has partnered with free agent and former Detroit Lions player Rudi Johnson. PROOF, we hear, is an American bistro concept with California fresh cuisine: Farmer's Market Vegetable Platter, Today's Real Dover Sole Fish (as opposed to what, yesterday's?), and the most ubiquitous menu item of the century, sushi. As for the naysayers who think the whole NFL star slash restaurateur fad is a dubious one, we point them to the whole celebrity masquerading as NFL owner fad as food for thought. [EaterWire]
