Pomegranate on Main restaurant

The former Surratt furniture store at 618 South Main Street in downtown Greenville became the home of Pomegranate on Main restaurant on November 21, 2007. As of 2018, downtown has become the premier destination for Greenville area diners boasting more than 100 restaurants.

GREENVILLE, S.C., November 16, 2019 — The success story of Pomegranate on Main restaurant, which celebrates its 12th anniversary this month, tells a story like many restaurants in the vibrant business district of downtown Greenville.

As of 2018, there were 136 restaurants in downtown Greenville, according to the most recent numbers tracked by the City of Greenville’s office of Economic Development.

“Downtown has truly become the premier destination for Greenville diners,” said Mary Douglas Hirsch, real estate development manager with the City of Greenville. “From 2010 to 2018, we have seen a 95 percent increase in restaurant sales from $77 million to $152 million.”

Pomegranate on Main will celebrate its 12th anniversary on Nov. 21, and owner Ali Saifi is proud to contribute to the diversity of restaurants and growth in downtown’s historic West End district.

“We are grateful people have responded to the restaurant and appreciate the special dining experience we’ve worked hard to create,” said Saifi, a long time Greenville resident who opened Pomegranate on Main to share a taste of his homeland of Persia, the old Iran, with the community. “For a city of its size, Greenville offers a big-city feel while retaining its small-town charm.”

To thank customers for their support, Pomegranate on Main is featuring several dinner entrees at a celebratory price of $12 each. The anniversary offer runs 12 days from Nov. 16-30; the restaurant is closed Sundays and Thanksgiving.

The 12th anniversary $12 special offerings are:
• Mondays – Tenderloin Torsh Kabob
• Tuesdays – Roasted Salmon
• Wednesdays – Koobideh Kabob
• Thursday – Lamb Shank
• Fridays – Bademjan Stew
• Saturdays – Chicken Torsh Kabob
