Twenty-five cent martinis at Commander's Palace

d504 Jul 4, 2012 08:13 PM

Does anyone know what kind of gin they use at Commander's Palace when they make their 25-cent martinis at lunch? I called once to ask and the man who answered the phone, clearly annoyed at the question, told me, "It's not swill." Which is nice to know but not very informative. Anyone have any idea?

    Can't swear to this, but I think it is Gordon's.

      Could not identify by taste but did have a dining companion who asked once and was told by our waiter (also clearly annoyed by the question).
      "Sir, they're twenty-five cents what do expect?"

        Didn't mean to be snarky but if you have a favorite let'em know. My guess is when you get there they will do their best to accommodate. We are once a year patrons so it's not like they know us, but every visit has been wonderful. Talk to your server or grab any Brennan who is running around. I am sure you will be satisfied.

          Sad to say but the answer is in based on our visit Friday. It truly is whatever they can get on the cheap based on our server's reply.
