It’s really too early to give a full on review of The Commissary, John Tesar’s new spot for burgers and small plates. I will say my first impression was fabulous! So, here it is in photos…
We went with the punch bowl of Sangria. It was plenty for the four of us throughout the meal. Plus, it’s fun to look at!
We were talking about the fact that they had sweet potato tots and the man next to us at the bar offered us a taste of his. Were they good? Hell, yeah.
We started with small plates…
N'Duja - Spreadable Sausage
Deviled Eggs with Caviar
Tempura Battered Sweetbreads
Fried Oysters with Salsa
All of the small plates were tasty. I really loved the egg with the caviar a lot.
Recognize the man in black at the end of the bar? Yep, that’s him.
On to the burgers…
Slade had the Tandoori Burger. Ground lamb, rubbed with tandoori spice served with tzatziki sauce in a grilled pita.
Hubbard had the Tail End. Braised pig’s tail, ground pork and beef topped with roasted pork belly, green tomato chutney and jalapeno mayo. I had to have a bite of that. Fantastic.
Lori’s is The Farmer. Check out the fried duck egg. Gotta love that.
I had the pork belly sliders. Aren’t they cute? I could only eat one, though and gladly took the other two home. Hubbard is the only one who left room for dessert. Pecan pie…
I can’t wait to go back. Another bonus is that the kitchen is open late. Can you say Lobster Bake on Sundays?
