What an amazing restaurant. I've been living in North park for over 5 years and had never tried the Pomegranate Russian-Georgian Restaurant. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is authentic and the staff are super. I'm going to have to go back to try other dishes. I had the special Fish Soup which was delicious and filling. I also tried the Chakhokhbili (georgian Eagle). The portion sizes were enough to take home a second meal. If you want to experience authentic Russian cuisine, this is the place to go.

Do you feel a need to be able to pronounce the food that you're eating? If you answered no, then have I got a restaurant for you. Pomegranate is a little hole-in-the-wall that oozes with character and offers up some scrumptious fare.

The room was packed. It took a fair amount of creativity to find a path to the table my friends had taken. The white walls are covered in the hand-written thoughts and adages of past patrons; apparently, graffiti is allowed if not encouraged. It took a while to get any service, but it didn't really matter. We were lost in the charm and over good vibe of the room.

For dinner we got a salad sampler (which came with eating instructions) and a meat-dumpling appetizer. The variety of textures and flavors were a brilliant prelude for the entrees to come. For dinner, I had the pork Shashlik: a kabob which is disassembled table side and drizzled with a pomegranate molasses. The meat was tender and juicy with a great combination of spices.

The selection of Russian beers made a perfect complement. I had never tried Russian/Georgian food before last night, but it definitely left a lasting impression. I'll be making my way back to Pomegranate post haste.
