“Commis is an intimate, intriguing place for a memorable gastronomic experience! ”
Commis is a small, comfortable, INTRIGUING, high-end restaurant, offering scrumptious gourmet dishes and wonderful services.
- Why intriguing? It has NO RESTAURANT NAME on its door, ONLY a street number!
Our 2 grown children treated us royally at this wonderful little bistro for dinner for my birthday! And what a treat it was, indeed!
Our friendly host took us to our tastefully setup table, on it there was an envelop with my name and a BD CARD signed by the Chef and rest of the staff! A very nice and warm touch! The small menu is classily printed. We all had the Pre Fixe dinner ($75, 7courses) with Wine pairing ($45), a reasonable price for a high end establishment. Everything had an artistic, appetizing presentation, and were all super-tasty! Although I was not able to pronouce the names of various courses and their accompaning wines, our knowlegeable and friendly waiter did patiently and clearly tell us what we were eating and drinking and what their unique characteristics were!
What a gastronomical treat and learning experience we had this evening! The service all evening was attentive and very pleasant! By the way, the portion of each course was small, BUT we all left the restaurant with a comfortably full and happily satisfied feeling.
This famous (albeit well "hidden"), small restaurant has only a few tables, plus a very nice, unique Chef's counter, where one can closely observe chefs at work. It's necessary to make reservations weeks in advance, especially for a space at the Chef's Counter to see the chefs perform!
- Oh yes, be sure to remember its "Street Number" before getting there!
