Welcome to The Pocket, the perfect place to be. We know, perfect is a big word! We didn’t get here overnight. The Pocket is inspired by two lifetimes of love for great cuisine, culture, fine wine and cocktails, and the joy of discovering the perfect pairing with family and friends. We were both born into the restaurant industry, watching our parents work hard to create beautiful experiences for their customers. From an early age, we both learned that the experience of dining out is just as important as the food itself. When you achieve that perfect combination of people, ambience, food and drink—you are in The Pocket. We’re so happy you found us. Enjoy, Kent IpsenOwner
