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.
