Commissary is one of LA's newest hot spots. It's housed in a green house on the roof top of the Line Hotel. They focus on fruits and vegetables but they also have meats as well! Their menu is all in pictures – which could be either fun for some who love a little mystery or not so fun for others. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by menu's – there is either way to many options or so many descriptions that everything sounds good. For the Commissary I like the surprise of it all. We picked items based on how we were feeling – lots of vegetables please! We ordered the corn, roasted carrots, deviled eggs and a few other things. Everything was quite tasty. The roasted carrots were among my favorite. I've got to take a stab at making these at home. Below you'll find a recipe for some roasted carrots to try at home!
