Poke O, a brand new poké option to Dallas, is opening up shop in Mockingbird Station later this month.
While the city is practically littered with poke restaurants, Poke O is a newcomer. The fledgling chain will open its first location at 5321 Mockingbird Lane inside Mockingbird Station, where it will join restaurants like Urban Taco and popular Irish pub Trinity Hall. After this location is open, the group of entrepreneurs behind the fledging brand also have plans to bring Poke O to locations across the U.S. and in Chile.
A press release announcing its arrival says that Poke O emphasizes “local produce” in addition to the fish that is sourced from decidedly non-local waters, and the “importance of community.” To that end, it will feature artwork by Dallas artists that will rotate each month.
While menu details are scarce at this point, Eater has learned that diners will either create bowls from scratch or can pick from several standard menu options including the Mediterranean Bowl with salmon, couscous, yellow radish, pineapple, sweet onion, mint, avocado, and lime-chile sauce, and the Ponzo Yellowtail Bowl with yellowtail, cabbage, green onion, chopped kale, cucumber, cilantro, red bell pepper, and Asian vinaigrette sauce. Wine, sake, and beer from local breweries will also be on offer.
Stay tuned for Poke O’s official opening date, expected to arrive in the next few weeks.
