Astoria’s newest restaurant was on the edge of glory this week with a visit from a pop superstar.

The Pomeroy, a new eatery that opened in Astoria on Tuesday, got a stamp of approval from none other than Lady Gaga.

Lady Gaga attended the opening of the restaurant, which is owned by her childhood best friend Bo O’Conner, and serves a mix of comfort food, a whole fried chicken and mac and cheese, and snacks like rice balls filled with porcini mushrooms and fontina. The Pomery also offers a whole slew of seasoned vegetables and potatoes.

We Heart Astoria first reported the singer’s attendance.

The restaurant, located at 36-12 Ditmars Blvd., is open Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. and Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 2:30 a.m.



Watch Mayor Bloomberg dance to Lady Gaga in State of the City intro video

Before Mayor Michael Bloomberg made his way to the podium for his 11th State of the City speech, he was introduced by a short, entertaining video chronicling his “journey” to get to this year’s speech.  Along the way he poked fun at himself — he danced to Lady Gaga who helped him ring in the new year with a kiss — and issues he has fought for over the years, including bike lanes and taxis in the outer boroughs.  Numerous city officials were featured in the video — Chancellor Dennis Walcott, press secretary Stu Loeser, Health Commissioner Thomas Farley and Transportation Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan all made appearances.  The scene stealer, though, was former Mayor Ed Koch standing at the entrance of the former Queensboro Bridge shouting at drivers welcoming them to “his” bridge.  Watch the full video below.  What do you think of the video?
