The Poke Bar has opened a new location in the Rosslyn neighborhood of Arlington, Va. according to the Rosslyn BID. The Poke Bar has nearly 70 locations across the United States, three in Canada and 4 in New Zealand. The California-based chain has its roots in the Yanagi Sushi concept, opened back in 1989 in Northbridge, Calif., merging its concept with Poke Bar.
From north of Los Angeles to Rosslyn’s ever-changing neighborhood and rising skyline, Poke Bar is sure to attract poke and sushi aficionados working and living in the Rosslyn market, as it has in its other Northern Virginia restaurant, located in the Mosaic District in Merrifield, Va.
Poke Bar is located at 1735 North Lynn Street, Rosslyn, Va., near the future site of the planned Common Ground food hall planned by the Social Restaurant Group and across from the CEB Tower at Central Place.
Poke is a preparation of Hawaiian origins that consists of raw, diced fish, which is typically served with rice and vegetables. The Washington, D.C. market has attracted a growing number of poke players due to the emerging consumer penchant for poke, including Honeyfish Poke and local Poke Papa. Poke Bar’s sushi-grade fish bowls can be customized by customers with greens, toppings and sauces.
