Comedor: My Favorite Restaurant!

Local foodies, rejoice! We are so fortunate to have some amazing restaurants in and around Newton. Restaurants that, in my opinion, rival some of the best in Boston. My personal favorite is Comedor. My husband and I have been there a handful of times and have never been disappointed…
