My best friend and I both happen to have April birthdays, and our first year out of college we started the tradition of going to a fun dinner just the two of us. At least a month ahead of time (possibly longer) we decided that Commodore Bar was the obvious choice.
A food blogger I’ll never be, but I had the “The Partridge” the first sip was all gin, but it mixed together very nicely, the pear brandy was very smooth. The other first cocktail was “Fitzgerald” with house made sour, very refreshing and more citrus than I was expecting.
For food we ordered the shrimp cocktail, which may seem boring, but was delicious and clearly prepared with more thought than when others make it. And the TOAST! I cannot say enough good things about this trio. You could order just one style if you wanted, but…..you really need all three, I couldn’t pick a favorite if you forced me, they were all delicious!
The cherry on top of the evening….bahaha. was the Commodore cocktail. Served with a hand dipped chocolate cherry, it is the reason I will be visiting again and again. There was also a butter cake, which was good, but I was done with photos at that point.
The food was wonderful, but the service was even better! We sat in one of the three bar areas, and even though we arrived at 7:30, there was no wait for a table. The chairs are low and comfy, but I wouldn’t wear a miniskirt as it will definitely ride up from the low seat.
Do you have a birthday tradition? What bar/restaurant do I need to visit next?
