The Chilean eatery on Restaurant Row doesn’t stand apart visually, yet much of the menu is genuinely unique. Skip the generic Continental dishes and consider the specialties, like hefty baked empanadas filled with beef or seafood. The savory pastries can be enlivened by pebre, a mild olive oil-based salsa. Pomaire excels with crock-based delicacies such as pastel de choclo, a layered casserole of beef, hard boiled egg, raisins and olives topped with sweet corn, as well as pulmay, a stew indigenous to central Chile tastefully crammed with salmon, smoked ham, chicken, brisket and potatoes moistened by a light white wine broth. There’s a large selection of South American wines and pisco cocktails, so beverage pairing is foolproof. So is the décor, a rustic space that recalls a well-worn Spanish villa—a few steps below street level, the narrow dining room is styled with rough-hewn wood, wrought iron lanterns, and wine bottles displayed atop eye-level shelves against the walls.Prix-Fixe
