Commis is a bay area gem where Chez Panisse meets Noma in an intimate setting. Try to get a seat at the Chef’s Counter, which is available only by phone reservation. It gives a unique opportunity to see those chefs at work - cooking and assembling each course with great care and precision. It also gives a glimpse into what comes next.
Everything is perfectly executed here. The menu is absolutely divine with every course in perfect harmony and balance with beauty and elegance. We love the emphasis on fresh vegetables. We had some of the best tasting vegetables here – asparagus that were carefully salted with dried herring roe, peas and avocado in this wonderful sauce, and perfectly grilled shallots with delicious, rich, and foamy broth. Other courses included heavenly oyster, a dish with egg yolk that took us back to the time when we dined at Noma, lamb with faro cereal and mushrooms that was just divine, and a perfect dessert. The wine pairing is a must. This is probably one of our very favorite wine pairings we tried anywhere. However, what makes this place really special is the amazing service – attentive, thoughtful, and considerate. This is probably one of the best meals we had in the US!
