Poké Perfect, an Amsterdam-based chain serving the Hawaiian meat and rice dish, is opening three locations in Atlanta, including one along the Atlanta Beltline.
The restaurant will open its first store in Decatur this spring. The owner, Hunter Satterwhite, told Atlanta Loop that the Beltline store will be in Inman Park and will be new construction. He said he expects the store to be open by the end of the year. He’s also opening in an unspecified West Midtown location over the summer.
“We will indeed to our knowledge be the first international Poké company,” Satterwhite said.
And what is Poké? According to the company’s website, “Poké is a Hawaiian dish, originally consisting of sushi rice, raw fish and several different toppings served in a bowl. You could basically describe it as sushi in a bowl. If you are not a fan of raw fish – don’t worry. We also serve smoked chicken or tofu.”
