The restaurant is a non-profit organization that helps foster the careers and businesses of immigrant and refugee women.
The New York Times has released their annual Best Restaurants List of 2021 that “reflect the rich mosaic of American dining,” through the nation’s best voted restaurants. In no definitive order, we were extremely happy to see that one of Denver’s most unique non-profit organization-meets-restaurant, Comal Heritage Food Incubator, has made it on the list! What an honor.
The beautiful and interactive NYT list had this to say about Comal, written by Brian Gallagher:
Gallagher doesn’t just highlight the food, but goes on to celebrate the unique concept of Comal. Their mission is to incubate the skills of immigrant and refugee female entrepreneurs in the gastronomy industry. The goal is to educate and aid women in establishing themselves in the industry, plus give them the tools to open their own business one-day. Since their start, Comal has helped launch 4 businesses and has served 24 participants in their training program.
Their training program spans 18-25 months and participants are trained to “learn on-the-job skills, test their heritage recipes and grow with a restaurant owner mindset. Everything on the menu is made from scratch, reflecting the heritage of each entrepreneur.” Just as Gallagher writes, many different types of food has been prepared here, and right now, the menu is focused on Mexican cuisine.
Right now, you can head on over to support them by dining on their amazing, always made-from-scratch menu. Right now, dive into the tastes of Mexican food, with dishes like Diablo Camarón, scrumptious, spicy tacos with pork or beef, and tinga de pollo. They’ve just finished celebrating their 5th anniversary so pay them a visit, chow down on some great food, or check out their farmer’s market!
