How many poke restaurants is too many poke restaurants? We’re probably on our way to finding out.
The latest addition to the rapidly growing Denver poke restaurant roster is Aloha Poke Co., a Chicago-based chain that will open up shop inside the future Zeppelin Station in River North, The Know reports.
The announcement of Aloha Poke Co.’s impending arrival comes less than 48 hours after we learned that two poke restaurants — Denver Poke Company and Poke House, will open up within two blocks of each other and just a few blocks from the still-young Ohana Island Kitchen.
By our count, that’ll bring Denver to six poke-focused restaurants and more than a dozen places to get the trendy Hawaiian dish.
Zeppelin Station isn’t slated to open until the end of the year, so Aloha Poke Co.’s opening is a ways away. It’ll be the company’s first location outside of Illinois.
