Commis

3859 Piedmont Ave.
Oakland , CA , United States http://www.commisrestaurant.com/
(510) 653-3902

A spare, albeit highly innovative, restaurant on a nondescript block of Piedmont Avenue (“across the street from Blockbuster,” notes the restaurant’s website). Simple names belie the complexity of each dish: for the cool carrot soup, roasted carrots are glazed with tarweed honey and garnished with nasturtium and coriander.
