The organic frozen yogurt cafe Blush closed recently in Walnut Creek right near Whole Foods and what other than a new poke restaurant called Pokeatery is opening in its place by year-end. Check out their menu here. Thanks to everyone who sent word about this.
From a press release:
Pokeatery, the Bay Area-based build-your-own poké concept, has announced that their first franchised location will open by year’s end in Walnut Creek, CA. The store is the first of three locations set to open in Northern California as part of a multi-unit deal with franchisees Gary Zhu and Julie Ren.
Pokeatery has gained much notoriety in Northern California for its authentic Hawaiian flavors and customizable poké bowls, brought to the mainland by restaurant industry veterans and founders Joann and Derek Chung. The husband and wife duo built Pokeatery’s menu on a commitment to offering fresh, responsibly-sourced ingredients in all of their menu items. A few standouts are the build-your-own poké boxes (customer’s choice of base, proteins, and unlimited mix-ins, sauces, and toppings), pokecado toast (whole wheat toast loaded with avocado, fresh poké, and a variety of topping options), and Dole Whip floats (pineapple soft serve in pineapple juice).
