I haven’t been to Coffee Commissary in forever; since my last visit a few new neighbors have moved into the building – including organic (female!!!) butchers Lindy & Grundy and 4-month-old The Fat Dog.
The outside is nondescript, but there is no doubt who this gastropub is named after
We didn’t see Luther (the owners’ bulldog) – apparently this place is pretty dog-friendly during the day but it’s good thing we decided to leave Julius home:
Inside, we settled into a cozy booth and snacked on a couple complimentary Rosemary Roasted Almonds
All of us were immediately drawn to their “Alternative Burger”
It was the only option for Abe so he ordered it
Amy and I decided to share one too, with Sweet Potato Fries ($1 extra)
Plus a chopped salad with swiss cheese on the side
They very thoughtfully split the burger in half for us!
FYI Vegans – don’t know if the patty’s cruelty-free, but it’s served with brioche (egg bun) + aioli
Snagged some of Abe’s plain fries
Dipped in lotsa ketchup and a creamy dill sauce
Wound up polishing off the rest of this bag too
We thought this place was a really chill, fun place to hang out with friends after work with solid food. Reasonably priced as well; the entire tab – including drinks, tax, and tip – equalled about $20/person (with my $40 Groupon it came out to a LOT less, obviously)
