Village Voice's Description
Imagine if your coolest Latin American friends threw a nightly dinner party out of a small dining room in Soho and you'll have a pretty good idea of breezy West Village restaurant, Comodo. Former Worth Kitchen supper club hosts, married couple Felipe Donnelly and Tamy Rofe, run this charmer with a menu that reflects Donnelly's multicultural upbringing in Spain, Brazil, Mexico and the U.S. The strongest dishes are what you'd eat at home on a good night: a bit of braised pork with garlicky greens, mushrooms and mashed potatoes or fresh pasta in a creamy Bolognese. For dessert, dip into the smoked iced cream and be reminded of just blown-out campfire marshmallows. Hopefully the few dining room stumbles, like the overuse of smoked mozzarella and the occasional lack of attention from wait staff, will work themselves out. In the meantime, enjoy this glimpse of post-supper club New York culture where every night is like a dinner party with friends. --Tejal Rao
Tips from foursquare
The restaurant was started as a kickstarter project by the owners who used to invite random people to dinner parties. Great story + great food!
Cozy hidden gem. Brunch: ceviche & quinoa cakes w/ a poached egg. Lunch: cochinita and bacon torta. Dinner: cauliflower gratin, lamb sliders, duck. YUM. Pay with Cover and skip waiting for the check.
Come for your birthday... That's all I am saying..
Pao de queijo lamb sliders! Do it! Right meow.
Try the lamb sliders, brussels sprout salad, scallops, and duck breast. Also, great house sangria. Also also, you can pay with Cover!
