Poké Perfect opens in DecaturPhoto provided by Poké Perfect
Poké Perfect, an Amsterdam-based chain serving Poké , a Hawaiian meat and rice dish, is officially open for business in Decatur.
The restaurant is located at 419 Church Street, in the old Yogurt Tap location.
“We are 100 percent open for business,” owner Hunter Satterwhite said in an email. Satterwhite is a partner with the owners of the Amsterdam branch of the restaurant, which opened in October, and he said there will be Poké Perfect locations in Inman Park and West Midtown.
The Decatur store will be open seven days a week, from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. For more information, check out the restaurant’s Facebook page by clicking here.
And what is Poké? According to the company’s website, “Poké is a Hawaiian dish, originally consisting of sushi rice, raw fish and several different toppings served in a bowl. You could basically describe it as sushi in a bowl. If you are not a fan of raw fish – don’t worry. We also serve smoked chicken or tofu.”
Satterwhite said he’s from North Carolina-Virginia border and his last project was a restaurant in Savannah called Treylor Park.
Poké has apparently become the newest food trend. The former Salon Red location is transforming into a juice bar that serves Poké, called PokéDrop, and the dish is currently on the menu at Kale Me Crazy, according to Decatur Downtown Development Manager Catherine Lee.
