Upper West Siders will get a new tapas option when Casa Pomona opens soon at 507 Columbus Avenue near 85th Street. A peek at the website’s staff page reveals that co-owner Sid Gupta is involved with Tuscan restaurant Pappardella, just down the avenue. Also onboard is executive chef Jodi Bernhard, and co-owner Marion Maur, a vet of SushiSamba and owner of the former Marion’s Country Kitchen in Woodstock. A rep tells us to expect an opening within the next two weeks.
