Ballston is set to get not one but — now — two new poke restaurants.
Details are scant but a restaurant called Go Poke has filed permit applications to open at Ballston Quarter mall (4238 Wilson Blvd).
“We can confirm ‘Go Poke’ will be opening in 2020 at Ballston Quarter in Quarter Market,” a spokeswoman for the mall said. It’s unclear where exactly in the food hall it will be located.
Go Poke looks to be the county’s fourth dedicated poke restaurant, offering its spin on the Hawaiian raw fish dish. Existing poke spots include Poké it Up in the Pentagon City mall food court, Poke Bar in Rosslyn and — soon — another Poké it Up in Ballston, at 4401 Fairfax Drive.
Other restaurants in Arlington offer poke bowls among a broader selection of food options.
