Located across from the Lorimer stop on the L train in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Italian & Middle Eastern mash up restaurant, Pomp & Circumstance, known locally as P&C, opened in 2019 by Chef James Ahearn and FOH lead Melissa Morales. Why the name? It is a reference to "great celebration", which they feel every meal out should be.
Melissa and James met years ago while working in the restaurant business and knew they wanted to open up their own place someday. Having both come from working in large restaurants, their goal with P&C is to embrace being small, focus on the details and product, not lose the message and always appreciate why they do what they do.
The vision for P&C came from James’s upbringing, learning to cook from his Armenian grandmother and Sicilian grandfather, and Melissa’s love for the cuisine. They want to educate and connect with their customers, serving natural wine and savory cocktails meant to pair perfectly with P&C’s unique cuisine. 100% from scratch, even fresh pita made to order
