Following the recent shutter of Seven Hens in Sandy Springs, a new restaurant is already coming online in the same space. Los Angeles-based chain Poke Bar has opened its first Georgia outpost at 6615 Roswell Rd. NE, Suite 340, according to Tomorrow’s News Today.
TNT reports Poke Bar has plans for further growth in the Atlanta area. Two more locations are apparently close, but not yet finalized.
Poke (that’s pronounced poh-kay) is emerging as the hot fast-casual trend across America. The traditional Hawaiian dish is comprised of raw fish and assorted accouterments. A look at Poke Bar’s menu reveals bowls with white or brown rice, salad, or nacho bases. Main proteins include tuna, octopus, and scallop, and bowls can be augmented with "mix-ins" and toppings such as crabmeat, seaweed, ponzu, and wasabi mayo.
In addition to the Sandy Springs outpost, Seven Hens recently closed in Decatur. That location is in line to become a Korean street food concept.
