From the outside, Comedor is all business: steel doors and a slate-gray color scheme. Step inside though, and you’ll find a chic interior with a long bar and courtyard area packed with well-dressed people drinking interesting cocktails. It’s likely that every table around you ordered the DIY bone marrow tacos to start, which is exactly what you should be doing as well. The bones are topped with a pecan gremolata and come on a bed of salty greens that you use to build your mini taco in a fresh tortilla. The entrees are on the pricey side, so share one or two if you’re here with a group - our favorites are the pork belly memela or strip loin in mole - otherwise, stick with the starters.
