Comodo, located in SoHo, brings a little bit of Latin America to downtown New York City. Whether you go to the restaurant for your next date or simply go to meet a friend for a glass of wine, you won’t leave disappointed. Why? Comodo, which translates to comfortable in Spanish, is just that; it is small, intimate, and the food is incredible. I went to Comodo for the first time last week and have nothing but amazing things to say about the restaurant. Not only is the food absolutely delicious, but this Latin American inspired cuisine is VERY nobread friendly; almost the entire menu is naturally gluten free! …
My NOBREAD recommendations? To start, you HAVE to order the lamb sliders on homemade Brazilian cheese bread. These bite size patties are delicious and I wish I didn’t have to share. Unfortunately, I am dairy free and I had to pass on the Brazilian CHEESE bread, but this baby bun is 100% gluten free and my cheese eating friends couldn’t stop raving about it. The daily ceviche and the mezcal octopus with warm kale are two more must-orders, and on my next visit I NEED to try warm brussels sprouts caesar salad and roasted cauliflower gratin… I’ve heard amazing things about both! For mains, I highly recommend the tamarind glazed black sea bass with broccolini, the quinoa platter with roasted market vegetables, and the duck breast with yucca puree and roasted asparagus. As I mentioned earlier, almost all of Comodo’s menu is naturally gluten free, and all mains are nobread approved except for the pasta dish and chipotle rubbed cod.
I had an amazing dining experience this week at Comodo, and I need to go back again soon! The brunch menu is very nobread friendly and unique and I have my eye on the butter quinoa cake poached egg and duck confit chilaquiles. Shrimp tacos are on the menu and sound delicious, but they are served on flour tortillas, so if you want this dish be sure to ask for your tacos with notortilla. Lastly, for everyone out there who loves Comodo as much as I do, the Comodo team just opened up a sister restaurant, Colonia Verde, in Brooklyn and I look forward to going very soon!
