Ahi Poké, a casual, all-day restaurant serving Hawaiian raw fish speciality poké will open in what used to be London's adland in June.
The 25-cover restaurant situated on Percy Street, London, is the brainchild of Jeremy Coste, Gabriel Cohen-Elia and David Bellaiche, the trio behind North Audley Cantine and Chez Chow.
Ahi Poké will offer eat in, grab'n'go and delivery based on the ideals of nutrition, sustainability and variety, the founders claim. Everything from the menu to the décor will be sustainable, with fish including ahi tuna, sea bream and salmon, sourced from socially responsible fisheries and packaging made from compostable containers.
The décor is inspired by Hawaiian beach shacks crossed with the "laid-back poké bar vibes of LA", where the team researched the concept. It is designed to emulate a beach café using reclaimed wood and driftwood among bright white and nautical blue hue.
A signature Poké Bowl (ahi tuna, sushi rice, scallions, red onion, black sesame, avocado, furikake, sesame shoyu) will be priced at £11. Alongside signature dishes, there will be customisable combinations starting with a base of quinoa, sushi rice, or red kale; a protein (ahi tuna, the fish classically used in poké, sea bream, salmon or marinated mushrooms); a sauce; and toppings.
