Dolly Dagger, Molotes, Garnachas and more…

Thursday, December 27th, 2012


New Year’s Eve is fast approaching, and we’re gearing up for a memorable night at Comal.  Instead of a regular dinner service that night, we’ll be transforming into a dancehall, with DJ Jose Ruiz (KPFA, KPOO) spinning his infectious mix of Latin and Funk into the wee hours.

Bartender Matt Campbell has twisted up a special NYE cocktail, Dolly Dagger, featuring buddha’s hand-infused tequila, blood orange, meyer lemon and cinnamon with a float of cava.

Chef Matt Gandin and his kitchen crew will keep a steady stream of antojitos (little snacks) flowing out of the kitchen throughout the night – some special items on the menu for NYE include:

Lettuce-wrapped Molotes w/ chorizo and potato

Quesadillas de Albondigas (meatball quesadillas)

Quesadillas w/ shrimp and wild nettles

Garnachas w/ Sanger duck and cascabel salsa

Tickets are $25 in advance ($30 cash at the door) and include all food offerings.  Capacity is limited and tickets are selling fast, so advance purchase is strongly recommended – tickets can be purchased online by clicking here or in person at Comal any night after 5pm.

Time – 9pm – 1:30am

Cost – $25 advance, $30 cash at door (includes food – drinks purchased separately)

Special Note – BART is open until 3am on NYE.   Comal is less than a block from the Downtown Berkeley BART station.

Abajo Now Open

Abajo, our new private dining room, is now up and running. It’s a great place for a holiday party, business dinner, birthday party or any other large group gathering. We can accommodate 12-22 people. Please click here for more information.

We hope to see you soon at Comal!
