It's been a while since we've seen a menu with so many desirable-sounding dishes on it as Pomona’s, a new West Coast/Cali-style restaurant and bar opening this winter in Notting Hill.
From "sweet potato toast, avocado, labneh, lime and cilantro gremolata" to "shredded kimchi and lardo toast" and "caramel croissant and prune pie with crème Anglais" it reads like a dream. That may be down to chef Gareth Sanderson's extensive travels along the West Coast of America, visiting LA and San Francisco for inspiration.
More dishes include "coconut Labneh, sourdough toast, blueberry jam, olive oil and sea salt" and "crispy pork belly, mojo de ajo, smoked polenta and winter leaf salad".
Situated in what was The Commander on Hereford Road, there's space for 120 diners. They've also made room for an American bar headed up by Kestutis Sturba formerly Head Bartender at Gordon Ramsay Restaurants, The Sanderson Hotel and The Electric.
Pomona's opens 30 November 2016 at 47 Hereford Road, London W2 5AH. They'll have a soft launch until 11 December with 50% off food. To book, call 020 7229 1503. Keep up with their news on Twitter @PomonasLondon.
