I think Dr.BBQ’s restaurant post could indeed qualify as comfort food.
Isn’t comfort food a highly personal thing based on foods that bring you back to your childhood, happier times, etc? If you grew up with Mom’s homemade Turkey Meatloaf with Tarragon sauce. then that is your personal comfort food. I grew up being fed Beluga from a silver spoon, so that’s my comfort food.
Kidding about the caviar, but you get the point.
