CLOSED Pomegranate Restaurant – Forest Hills, NY

About us

Symbolically, pomegranate represents fruitfulness, knowledge, learning, prosperity and wisdom. In addition, it is a symbol of righteousness because it is said to have 613 seeds, which corresponds with the 613 commandments of the Old Testament. Out of the 613, there are 248 positive commandments such as To bless G-d after eating and 365 negative commandments, such as not to eating milk and meat together

It is known that  pomegranates are mainly grown in America, Spain, the Middle East and India but originated in Iran. Pomegranates have always been highly praised for their flavor, but their recent emergence as a highly nutritious food enriched with antioxidant vitamins, has made them even more popular.

The cuisine at Pomegranate Restaurant is not known for its Mediterranean seasoning, but known for its subtle flavors developed with herbs, onion, garlic, peppers and many vegetables.  The principal spices used are cumin, coriander, turmeric, pepper, and a light touch of hot chili. Meat and poultry Kebabs and Steaks are used to enrich and accompany the dish.
