DETAILS
Former Phish manager John Paluska teams with ex Delfina chef de cuisine Matt Gandin at downtown Berkeley's Mexican standout Comal. 




Full bar. Serving dinner nightly. "Owner John Paluska, who was the manager of the rock band Phish for 17 years, has grasped the importance of acoustics in promoting a pleasant dining experience and incorporating what he learned in his other life into the new business. He's a first-time restaurateur, but he's put together a nearly flawless team. The servers know every detail of the menu and how to adjust the ebb and flow inherent in a shared-plate restaurant. The masters behind the bar create some of the best cocktails in the Bay Area; and the team toiling in the open kitchen has a passion that's visible on each plate."
