We hear he was back at Pomona — the same spot where he and Singer got it on last month — on Wednesday, hitting on random women.
“He was calling two women who he obviously didn’t know, saying, ‘Come on, ladies, come back, I’ll buy you girls a drink,’ ” says a spy.
But they weren’t taken by his charms.
“They started walking faster.”

Pomona Opens, Serving Inventive American Fare
Michael Vignola, who was the original executive chef at Henry at Life Hotel, and Rachid Abdelouahad, who was director of operations at Strip House and Blue Water Grill, among others, have joined forces to move into the underground space that was the clubby Beautique for a few years. The Midtown location was also at one point Shezan, a chic Indian restaurant designed by the architect Charles Gwathmey.There’s no trace of it in Jason Henning’s design, which includes butterscotch leather banquettes, polished wood in amber tones, lanternlike lights and several archways. This time around, there will be a tiny lounge area on the street level. Downstairs, there’s a bar, main dining room, a smaller room with tile flooring, and an even smaller private room. To the rear, past the bar and through the kitchen, is a lounge. Mr. Vignola is serving inventive American fare like foie gras sliders, potato and mackerel terrine, slow-cooked halibut, rib-eye for two cooked two ways, and a duck burger. The restaurant is named for a Roman goddess of abundance.
Sample New York’s newest over-the-top burger, which is made with confit duck leg.
Duck: It’s everywhere. But what about a duck burger? There’s one on the menu at the brand-new Pomona (8 West 58th Street), a New York–nostalgic restaurant from the duo who worked at places like Strip House and Daniel. (They also ran the short-lived first iteration of Henry.) That pricey bird burger ($38) is one complicated patty. It’s made with ground duck breast, chopped liver, scraps of foie gras, and confit leg meat, which is all spiced up. After grilling, it’s rested into a duck jus with orange, and served on a brioche bun with duck-skin mayo, orange zest, mustard, and grapefruit jam. (The rest of the menu similarly retrofits many other steakhouses and meaty classics.)
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.
TimeOut: Savage Lounge Opens
It's like a scene right out of a movie. In fact, it pretty much is.
Guests enter the new Savage Lounge a la Goodfellas, through the kitchen of Midtown restaurant Pomona (8 W 58th St). The speakeasy is not just a place to drink, DJs spin late into the night at the black-and-white 120-person cocktail bar. Inside, there is a black lacquered bar surrounded by leather banquettes and two custom art installations that include an oversized pair of thumbprints of Pomona’s chef Michael Vignola. There are also pieces from a rotating roster of artists, all of which are available for sale.
