Pomaire is now La Pulperia -- a lovely and cozy restaurant in the NYC theater district. The food was delectable and the service superb! Although we made a reservation using Open Table (which I love because it simplifies the entire process), we elected to eat at the bar and had a wonderful time with Olga, the bartender. This restaurant has given an inordinate amount of attention to their cocktail menu, and it does NOT disappoint. If you like spicy drinks, be sure to try the El Chilango. It was fantastic!
As for our meal selection, the men in our party raved on about the richness of the pappardelle. My friend and I elected to choose a few appetizers and share -- both the traditional guacamole and the salmon brulee (one of two chef specialties) were fresh, yet each displayed a very complex set of flavors. However, the pièce de résistance and the second of the chef specialties, was the taquitos de langosta. We enjoyed them so much we ordered a second serving so our husbands could try them. They were absolutely remarkable!
Victor (co-owner) and George (GM) were both on hand Saturday night (4/20/13) and were very gracious and thoughtful hosts. Both dropped by the bar to chat with our party and made us feel like we were having dinner with family. Having been open only a couple of months, the masterminds behind this concept on Restaurant Row have compiled a staff that has completely “bought in” from the front to the back of the house – and it shows! Congratulations on a job well done! Can’t wait to return.
