The other night, my teammates and I met for a get together at Comal, a relative recent entry in the Berkeley Arts District scene
. It was so much fun. Comal has a great beer/margarita garden in the back with margaritas and â€œcraftâ€ cocktails of every flavor and aroma. (Try the Del Rio, with tequila, sherry, St. Germain, orange bitters and grapefruit zest.)
And then thereâ€™s the food. I had the fish tacos and wondered why they were so good. It turns out the chef, Matt Gandin, heralds from Delfina in the City. So, these are not your Mission Street tacos. Weâ€™re talking wood-grilled Mahi Mahi, with pickled cabbage and avocado aioli.
So, next time you find yourself in the Berkeley Arts District, check out Comal. Feel free to stop by my office if youâ€™re in the neighborhood and say hello.
