Pomona is across the street from the Plaza Hotel and underneath the Paris Theater, and while you will find a $19 shrimp cocktail and a royal caviar eclair on the menu, this place doesn’t feel stuffy. There’s a casual bar space, a dining room with big orange leather booths, and music like Christine and the Queens on the speakers. The food is on the heavy side - they serve goose fat tater tots and a duck confit burger with duck skin mayo and duck jus. Come here when you want an upscale dinner and are OK with $40 entrees, but don’t want to feel out of place wearing jeans.

Salt & Fat
We wanted to love Sunnyside's Salt & Fat more than we actually did. Every dish on the menu reads like a carnivore’s delight, and while some items are incredible, others completely miss the mark.
Valhalla is almost like a noisy beer bar you’d find the East Village, except it’s a little more grown up and in Hell’s Kitchen.
