The Commissary is Chef John Tesar's newest entry into the Dallas foodie scene. The restaurant features an approachable, affordable menu of upscale burgers and comfort food eats. What's most surprising, however, is the restaurant's stellar wine list, as picked by several staff sommeliers. The wine list even includes several wines on tap, generally from the Texas area. Happy hours are daily form 4-6 pm, and features both discounted food and drink. The Commissary is exactly what the Arts District needed - approachable and affordable food. Perfect before seeing a show at the ATT PAC!
