Comal is a restaurant on a quest: The RiNo lunch spot opened in late 2016 with the goal of training low-income women (many of whom are immigrants and refugees from Mexico, El Salvador, Syria, Ethiopia and Iraq) in restaurant and business skills. But such noble ambition doesn't mean much if a restaurant doesn't serve great food — and here Comal succeeds admirably. Mexican dishes are on the menu early in the week, with offerings changing regularly based on recipes handed down from generation to generation. On Friday, though, Syrian cooks take over the kitchen and serve creamy hummus and pillowy housemade pita, along with other hard-to-find dishes such as stuffed artichoke hearts, bulgur salad and the transcendent dessert called kanafeh, made of mild white cheese surrounded by shredded pastry and soaked in syrup. You'll want to sample everything the kitchen turns out — which is why you'll keep returning to Comal, time and time again.
