New York Sate Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver is amazed how Pomegranate, the ultramodern kosher supermarket in Brooklyn, has inspired so many kosher shoppers.
"My wife gets her Shabbos food there every Friday," he told me.
Having made an impact on shoppers - with its valet parking, and aisles wide enough to navigate with a golf cart, never mind shopping cart - it's no wonder that the store's owner was one of four honorees recognized by Met Council.
Pomegranate, the kosher gourmet grocery store in Flatbush, Brooklyn, will supply a half-dozen dips at The Jewish Week-sponsored Grand Wine Tasting to be held Sunday, March 14, 1-5 p.m. at City Winery, in Tribeca.
The dips — including hummus, Pomegranate’s most-popular dip — and crackers will complement some 170 wines at the event. “There’s a demand for our dips,” says owner Abraham Banda.
