What better setting is there than a greenhouse to eat some greens? Commissary at the Line Hotel offers a rare bit of greenery amidst the concrete jungle of LA. Not to mention their greens are as good as the view…
Of course, their menu offers much more than garden fare, and a large amount of it is indeed gluten free. I went to the restaurant on a lovely weekend night with my family, and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting at a communal table and watching the sunset through the glass of the greenhouse. Also communal, the dishes at Commissary are placed in the middle of your table, family style, to be shared. Along with our seasonal libations, we ordered several plates for the table. Starting out healthy, we ordered the Grilled Lettuce (topped with avocado, peaches, and bacon) and the Charred Carrots, topped with parmesan and served with a delicious green sauce! I was surprised at how much I loved this dish – definitely the best carrots I have ever had. We also ordered the Chicken Confit which was served with a delicious corn compote. All of the food was so fresh and tasty, and beautifully plated as well. Next time I definitely have to order the Grilled Melon (with fresnos, mint, honey, and prosciutto!) and the Braised Octopus (with avocado and a pine nut herb salad). I am dying to come back to try their brunch!
With a setting as beautiful as the food, what’s not to love?
