Comodo, the Latin American-inspired restaurant from husband-wife team Felipe Donnelly and Tamy Rofe (executive chef + sommelier, respectively) is offering a healthy dose of spring. The restaurant, located in the Freehand New York, just launched its weekend brunch with expansive outdoor seating decorated with wicker light pendants and lush potted plants. It is also debuting a new Gallery Room that features rotating exhibits from local artists.
At Comodo, Chef Donnelly’s menu pulls from his childhood throughout Latin America (from Mexico to Brazil and beyond). The beverage program highlights natural wines curated by Rofe, and signature cocktails that pay homage to the lively social moments experienced throughout the hotel.
Weekend Brunch includes new offerings like Pambazo with housemade bolillo dipped in adobo roja, chorizo, potatoes, crema and cotija; Breakfast Tacos with scrambled eggs, chihuahua cheese, avocado and black beans; and Chilaquiles Rojos with cecina, guajillo-tomato salsa and queso fresco.
The new Gallery Room holds space for emerging artists of diverse, underrepresented backgrounds. The first artist highlighted is Diaja, who is known for storytelling through photographic series often inspired by current events, Black and African culture and social disparities. On display will be Diaja’s Adam X Eve Series, inspired by the impact media has on people and how what we see/are consumed with daily subconsciously shapes how we view the world.
