the commissary



wednesday night mom came in town for a little mom/daughter time, and after a little shopping and a fun pedicure, we decided dinner was in order.

we picked stephen up and headed to the commissary - a new(er) restaurant in dallas' lovely one arts plaza. the food and service were both fabulous.  i tried the special which was tempura fried scallops served on sliced avocados and a delicious sauce. mom got the crabcake burger - it was so good and was mostly just crab meat which was a nice surprise (you know when you get that crab cake and it's all filler? not this one!), she also tried the sweet potato tots which were adorable and yummy. stephen had the tandoori burger - lamb with a tzatziki sauce served in a pita, alongside their skinny fries - delectable.

we enjoyed wine and great conversation, but were just too full for dessert...i guess that means we'll just have to go back, right?! i hope to also go back when it's a bit cooler, as they have a really beautiful outside eating area on the plaza.

if you're in dallas or stopping by, i recommend trying this fun, delicious place, and maybe even enjoy a show or concert or head to the museums afterward, since you're in the largest arts district in the nation!
