Pomaire
Hell's Kitchen
Almost as impressive as its boast of being the sole Chilean restaurant in New York, Pomaire can also lay claim to being the most intriguing spot on Restaurant Row. In a colorful, brick-walled dining room lined with indigenous art, expats and stray theatergoers savor ceviche appetizers (the mariscal is a well-rounded sampler) whose acidity pairs well with pisco cocktails. Fish entrées, like the grilled salmon in a lobster reduction are well-prepared, but the real revelation are the casseroles made in a claypot. The chupe de mariscos is a sumptuous stew of scallops, shrimp and mussels blended together in melted cheese, while the pastel de choclo is a layered beef pie, laced with onions and raisins and crowned with sweetcorn. Unlike most Theater District spots, Pomaire deserves an encore.
