With plenty of friends and family dinners, Commissary isn't exactly a secret anymore, but here now, the full photographic introduction to Roy Choi's latest achievement inside The Line Hotel. After a successful debut of POT, Pot Bar, and CaFe, this is the final piece to Roy Choi's commanding presence at the heart of the largest Korean enclave in America. And it's a cool show. Housed inside a massive greenhouse on the rooftop deck of the hotel, Commissary focuses on vegetables, which means grilled corn, asparagus, and salads galore. It's a fancy schmancy country club pool, right smack in K-Town.
What else? Jon Favreau has a hand in this one, with a Chef-inspired grilled cheese with tomato soup. Also, deviled eggs (obvi), schnitzel (not so obvi), black bass with buttered peas, and a mean French dip sandwich.
As for drinks, Matthew Biancaniello had a hand in producing this list of cocktails, such as the tomato and okra, made with cachaça, green zebra heirloom tomatoes, and lovage. Or perhaps sip on the Blueberry, holding bourbon, cucumber, huacatay (Peruvian black mint), and blueberry. If all else fails, there's always the Snoop Dogg approved Gin & Juice, combining anything from beet, watermelon, apple, carrot, and pineapple juice with gin. A full compliment of wines and beer rounds out intoxicants.
