Last week I had lunch with a few girlfriends at Pomegranate On Main. I've had dinner at Pomegranate before, but never lunch. Their lunch menu was very reasonably priced, and the service was excellent.
They start every table out with a traditional Persian breakfast of warm flat bread, salted butter, feta, radishes, and mint. I'd never had this combo before, but it was incredible. The saltiness of the pita and butter combined with the mint was a totally unexpected tasty flavor combination.
Maybe it's just the cheapo in me, but any time a restaurant gives you something complimentary other than a typical dry bread basket I'm immediately impressed. Knowing that they've taken that extra step is always a plus in my book.
For my entree, I had the Chicken Wrap. Marinated chicken, tomatoes, onions, pickles, parsley, mayo, and Persian citrus dressing served in a flat bread. Oh my. Chicken wraps are typically dry and uninspired, and this sandwich was far from either of those. The chicken was perfectly cooked and juicy, and the acidity of the pickles and citrus dressing were just the right addition. It's also served with a lightly dressed side salad, a bang for your buck at it's $9.00 price point.
I love finding new lunch spots downtown, and will be returning to Pomegranate very soon!
