    There are a gazillion names they could have chosen. Why choose Pomegranate?!

    Having worked previously as a private investigator in trademark litigation and research, while this isn’t a trademark, the sheer fact that this article was intro’d as “not to be confused with” is going to cause a problem. Maybe they asked permission and got it, but they could have made a minor effort to be creative and think of a new name. It doesn’t give me confidence that the fare will be good if they can’t be original and unique with the first thing you think of before you step into their restaurant.

    • This was my first reaction too — why make things confusing and complicated for the customer? It’s going to make building an online brand a little more complicated too.

    I agree, the name is confusing! But it’s nice to have this type of restaurant opening over there.
