    I love Chef McMillan. I can only hope he can clean up the venue. The Commissary spewed cooking grease out onto the walkway and parking lot almost from day 1. It was a hot mess.

    You are welcome. Tapas (mezze) this time.

    The Commissary sold several mos ago. IMO it’s just not the same without John Tesar at the helm. The new owner upped the prices on the menu by $1-$3….not cool. I live in One Arts and welcome a new restaurant in it’s place.

    From day one there was just something not right about the Commissary. No surprises it is closed. The last two times I was there for lunch I was the only person in the restaurant. Ziziki’s is always great and should do well. Can’t wait to check it out.

    it’s sad that Tesar wasn’t able to stick around at the Commissary. it was a lot of fun when he was there and the food could be brilliant. the few random times i’ve peered in since he left, it looked dead.

    So a Londoner is going to open across the street from the Dubliner?
