Style Weekly dines at Pomegranate

Formerly in Shockoe Slip it’s found a new home in Carytown but has it found it’s old form?

There are no shortage of dining options in Cartytown and Pomegranate is one of the newest. Style Weekly tries it out and comes back with a positive review of the food but not so positive on the service.

Keep an ear out for the daily specials. On my third visit, my eyes light up when I hear house-made scrapple with a sunny-side-up egg and pancetta maple syrup ($12), ordering it with a duck fat buttermilk biscuit ($4) and spinach salad. When my food arrives, the biscuit is missing, so I question its absence. “Oh, did you want that now?” I was nonsensically asked. While I should have had my biscuit right from the start, it doesn’t impair my ability to enjoy LaCivita’s Cinderella take on the lowly combination, transforming hot scrapple and a warm, runny egg into a dish of refinement and satisfying depth brightened by the titillating sweetness of the syrup, sopped up with the tardy biscuit.
