Comodo: A small Soho storefront packed with a lot of Latin flavor, Comodo means “comfortable” in Spanish and this rustic resto exudes just that, complete with friendly communal tables topped with small paper bags full of fresh bread and spoonfuls of truffle butter, an even friendlier staff, and that kind of walk-in-and-know-everybody atmosphere seldom seen so confidently in a neighborhood newbie. The at-home ambiance derives directly from the fact that the 45-seater is the brick-and-mortar upgrade of Worth Kitchen, the supper club based out of husband-and-wife team Chef Felipe and Tamy Donnelly’s own apartment. Felipe’s Latin-accented fare runs the gamut of Mexican to Brazilian, with delicioso, though small and high-priced (this is SoHo, after all), dishes like “Pao de queijo” (translation: cheese bread) lamb sliders with chipotle cream ($11), hibiscus & queso fresco spring rolls with fig wine reduction ($10) and a stick-to-your-ribs duck breast with “Classico” sauce, quinoa, mozz & roasted cherry tomatoes ($28), washed down with a carafe of perfumy house sangria. The one thing Comodo needs is más—more menu options, more food on the plate, more room to roam—but for good food and a glass of sangria (or three) amongst friends, you’ll find comfort in Comodo.
