Opening alert: Go Fish Poke Bar in Palo Alto

Uploaded: Oct 24, 2016
In case you need another local poké option, Go Fish Poke Bar will be opening its doors at Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto this week.

Go Fish Poke Bar is hosting a soft opening this Friday, Oct. 28, and a grand opening on Saturday, Oct. 29. The grand opening will run from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Go Fish Poke Bar took over and remodeled two spaces recently vacated by Red Mango and Auntie Anne's Pretzels, around the corner from McDonald's. (See the orange section marked "L" in this map of the mall for reference.)

Go Fish Poke Bar is the brainchild of Jerome Ito, 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 last year.

At Go Fish Poke Bar, diners can customize poké bowls with ingredients like rice, yam noodles, housemade sauces and a range of toppings, from avocado and wasabi to Gilroy garlic furikake and miso crab. The menu also includes pre-set combinations, like the Tataki bowl with seared albacore tuna, ponzu sauce, fried onion, green onion, ginger, wasabi and sesame. Browse the menu here.

There are also handrolls and regular non-poké specials.

Go Fish Poke Bar will bring the grand total of Palo Alto poké eateries to three, all of which opened in the last six months. (There's pokéLOVE at Town & Country Village and Poki Bowl on El Camino Real, close to California Avenue.)

Ito also plans to open a third Go Fish Poke Bar in Redwood City later this year.

At Stanford, Go Fish Poke Bar joins a growing list of new dining options. Fast-casual salad chain Tender Greens opened this summer, followed by health-centric True Food Kitchen in early October. 3potato4, which serves vegan, baked French fries; Minamoto Kitchoan, which sells artisanal Japanese desserts; and a cafe at the new Anthropologie store are all expected to open before the end of the year.
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
