Newton Center is a surprisingly hip neighborhood that is home to several quality restaurants. Right around the corner from the T, you find Comedor, a Chilean restaurant that puts a Latin twist on American dishes. Comedor is run by a husband and wife duo that met while studying culinary arts at Boston University (Go Terriers). The restaurant is extremely inviting with an open kitchen and a bar. The menu offers two styles of dishes: small plates and big plates. Both sizes of plates feature a variety of brunch and lunch dishes (mostly brunch) that also vary in country of origin. Even though there aren't a huge variety of dishes, Comedor’s brunch menu feels large due to the difference in options. We delightfully ordered a variety of dishes ranging from the basket of pastries to Chilean eggs benedict. We also couldn’t resist ordering the house-made dulce de leche donut. The pastries are served warm and fresh; with chocolaty cookies, vanilla pound cake, and donut holes your sweet tooth won’t feel left out at this brunch. The Chilean eggs benedict is served with lentil queso in place of meat and is flavorful but lacking a level of spice. Unfortunately the portion size leaves you wanting more; especially for the price as dishes range from $9 to $15 dollars. Comedor is a unique spot worth the (what seems like forever) t ride from the city.
