Pomegranate Bistro Redmond, WA
Where there’s even bacon in the popcorn
Yes, you read that right, bacon infused popcorn; as well as Northwest inspired fare with charming southern undertones from owner, Lisa Dupar. In fact, the whole restaurant is charming. The ambiance is inviting, the decor modern and the menu contemporary. Dupar has earned an impressive reputation for creating food inspired by her Southern roots while honoring classic techniques and using amazing local ingredients. The food is fresh and will always surprise you, in a good way.
Bar snacks are upscale, drinks are unique and the atmosphere is fun. Nosh on crispy calamari and artichokes or lamb sliders with feta. The truffle parmesan fries are another hit. Sip on the classic Pomerita, a fruity drink featuring pomegranate juice, tequila and fresh raspberry puree. In the mood for something a little darker? Their hot brown butter rum infused with hazelnut will hit the spot. Pom bar also features a unique mix of non-alcoholic drinks for those who like their drinks zero proof.
The menu is seasonal and changes often but the classics are always available. Lisa’s Southern Fried Chicken has been described as “heavenly” and can even be found on the brunch menu. Another classic is the house made fire bread which can be topped to your liking. We recommend the hot smoked salmon fire bread with pickled shallots, fresh peppers and fried capers. Don’t get too full though, their dessert menu is what dreams are made of.
