A poke restaurant based in downtown Chicago plans to open a location in Milwaukee’s East Side neighborhood next month.
Fusion Poke would occupy a 2,371-square-foot space that formerly housed The Hotch Spot bar and restaurant at 1813 E. Kenilworth Pl. Owner Yulin Zheng, who signed a lease for the space in December, wants to open the restaurant on May 15, according to a City of Milwaukee license application. Zheng was not immediately available for comment.
The fast-casual restaurant will be open daily for lunch and dinner. Fusion Poke joins a handful of other poke restaurants that have opened or been proposed throughout the city, including FreshFin Poke, Aloha Poke, and Ren Poke.
