Every meal starts with these amazing sweet rolls and butter.
Scallop empanadas
Mini Chilean BBQ Plate
Papas Fritas
Half a Pint of Pickles
Comedor is one of the most buzzed about restaurants in the metro Boston area because of it's fusion of American and Chilean fare. The Newton Centre tapas restaurant is owned by Jakob and Fernanda White, who met while studying culinary arts at Boston University. They both worked for 51 Lincoln in Newton, but their dream was to open their own place. They did it with Comedor.

I was surprised to discover they had Von Trapp beer from the Trapp Family Lodge in Vermont on tap, so I had to order myself a glass. they also have many beers by the bottle and wine. Comedor's menu is made up of meat, seafood and vegetarian tapas. My fiancee is a vegetarian, so she ordered the papas fritas, half a pint of pickles and spiced cauliflower tacos. The eggplant serves as the taco for those little delights. I enjoyed their "Mini Chilean BBQ Plate," a mix of chicken, chorizo and potatoes. I also sampled their "Scallop Empanadas." The crust on the empanadas was so good. You may think that the fontina cheese stuffed inside of the empanadas with the scallops wouldn't work, but they complemented each other quite nicely.

Comedor is open for dinner Tuesdays-Sundays. They also serve brunch on Sundays, where they offer mouth-watering creations like a strawberry glazed donut, blueberry pancakes and their "Open-faced Sammy", two eggs served on Texas toast with whipped avocado.
