Dia de los Muertos!

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016

Tonight and tomorrow night we will be celebrating Dia de los Muertos at Comal.

To mark the occasion, our front façade windows feature matching “calavera” paintings on both sides of the front door by our good friend Jose Ruiz, who will also be doing a special DJ set tonight featuring songs that nod to the theme of death in some fashion.

We’ll also be sending everyone home with a piece of “pan de muerto” (bread of the dead), baked at Berkeley’s own Casa Latina. The pan de muerto is a traditional sweet bread decorated with bones to represent lost loved ones.

Hope you can make it by tonight or tomorrow night to join in the festivities!

Save the DATES

On Dec 31, Comal will be hosting our fifth annual NYE Dance party and on December 27 and 28 we will be hosting our 2nd annual Oaxanukkah dinners – tickets will go on sale later this month for both events – stay tuned for more details!

Group Dining at Comal

With the holidays fast approaching, Comal has two great options for gatherings of family and friends or business holiday parties – Table 30 and Abajo.

Table 30 is our community table in the front of the restaurant – it seats 8-11 people on long benches.  Abajo is our cozy private dining room located in our cellar – it seats 12-22 people.  In both cases we offer a multi-course, fixed price menu that can be tailored to the specific needs of your party.  For Abajo, we have also created special custom cocktails for parties with names to match on several occasions.

Here are sample menus for Table 30 and Abajo
