UPDATED: Pomegranate Restaurant is now open! The restaurant serves Bukharian cuisine, including traditional dishes such as manti (steamed dumplings), shurpa soup, and samsa (a meat-filled fried pastry.) Their website also offers a really interesting history of Bukharian Jewry in their About Us section. Their hours are 11:30 am- 11:00 PM and on Saturdays from hour after Shabbat ends until 12:30 am.
Pomegranate Restaurant, not to be confused with the Pomegranate supermarket in Brooklyn, is a new restaurant that will be opening up on Yellowstone Boulevard in Forest Hills, Queens!
The restaurant will be Glatt Kosher Middle Eastern fare. However, since their website, like their physical restaurant, is still under construction, we can’t tell you much about it yet, but we’ll post more info as we learn it!
