Opening alert: Go Fish Poke Bar in Redwood City

Uploaded: Feb 20, 2017

Downtown Redwood City will be getting its own dedicated poké eatery this week with the opening of Go Fish Poke Bar on Friday, Feb. 24.

Go Fish Poke Bar's third location will open at 823 Hamilton St. It follows the original location in San Jose and second outpost at Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto, which opened in October.

Owner Jerome Ito is a Los Angeles native who worked as sushi chef at Bushido Izakaya in downtown Mountain View before opening Google's first dedicated sushi bar. He left Google to start his own catering company and opened the first Go Fish Poke Bar in San Jose in 2015.

Like the many other fast-casual poké spots opening in the Bay Area, Go Fish Poke Bar customers can customize their own poké bowls from a range of seafood, toppings and sauces. There are also vegetarian options.

In a nod to Ito's past, Go Fish Poke Bar also serves handrolls and non-poké chef's specials. View the full menu here.

The eatery will be open from Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
