Continuing the growth of Mockingbird Station’s restaurant scene, yet another new poke restaurant is opening in the development.
Details on the new spot, called Poke O, are relatively scarce, but leasing documents indicate that it will pop up in a 1,500 square foot space at 5321 Mockingbird Lane in Suite 130, not too far away from the newly-relocated Urban Taco and currently open Mediterranean restaurant Mezze. At least three units are still available in the area where Poke O will open, which could indicate the arrival of even more new restaurants.
Poke O is just the latest in an onslaught of poke-focused eateries that have opened in Dallas over the past year or so. It joins Malibu Poke, Below 40 Poke House, The Poke Point, Hoki Poki, Poke Bop, The Low Key Poke Joint, Pok The Raw Bar, Freshfin Poke Co., and even more recently-opened shops focused on the popular Hawaiian raw fish dish. At this point, one has to wonder whether or not Dallas (and its suburbs) have hit peak poke.
Eater has reached out to Mockingbird Station for more details on Poke O’s arrival. Stay tuned, and in the meantime, score a bowl at one of the city’s plentiful poke options that are open right now.
