3rd Annual Oaxanukkah Dinners at Comal

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

In addition to our popular Jewish/Mexican mashup Passover Dinners each spring, Comal’s December Oaxanukkah dinners are becoming a yearly tradition in their own right. The 3rd annual installment of these multi-course family-style dinners will take place in Abajo, Comal’s intimate private dining room, on Monday, December 4th and Tuesday, December 5th. Executive Chef Matt Gandin has created a menu in his signature Mexican style inspired by classic Hanukkah dishes. While a menorah will be lit, this is first and foremost a fun cultural celebration, a mash-up of traditional Hanukkah dishes and Mexican flavors.

The dinners will start promptly at 6:30 pm. Seating is limited to 22 diners per night, and based on past events, tickets are expected to sell fast. Tickets are $75 per person (service charge included but beverages and tax excluded) and can be purchased through one of the following links:

After hosting popular Passover Dinners each spring for the past four years, last December Comal added a new twist on the Jewish/Mexican mash-up theme with a Mexican-inspired pair of Oaxanukkah Dinners, which were a huge hit. The 2nd annual installment of these multi-course family-style dinners will take place in Abajo, Comal’s intimate private dining room, on Monday, December 26th and Tuesday, December 27th. Executive Chef Matt Gandin has created a menu in his signature Mexican style inspired by classic Hanukkah dishes. While a menorah will be lit, this is first and foremost a fun cultural celebration, a mash-up of traditional Hanukkah dishes and Mexican flavors.

The dinners will start promptly at 6:30 pm. Seating is limited to 22 diners per night, and based on past events, tickets are expected to sell fast. Tickets are $75 per person (hospitality included but beverages excluded) and can be purchased through one of the following links:

5th Annual NYE Party!

Mark your calendars! We will be hosting our annual NYE dance party with DJ Jose Ruiz at Comal on December 31st starting at 9am – tickets will go on sale on November 22nd. As usual, we’ll be offering a steady stream of delicious food from our kitchen throughout the evening in addition to DJ Jose’s infectious Latin funk. Not to be missed!

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

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!
