Poke Bowl Love, one of the first restaurants in town to specialize in the uniquely Hawaiian dish known as poke, has closed.
In a statement on the restaurant’s Instagram page, the owners posted: “We are sorry to announce that after four unforgettable years, we have made the difficult decision to permanently close on September 22, 2021. We will miss this beautiful community and all the wonderful people we’ve come to know here. To our loyal regulars, we cannot thank you enough for your support and hope to see you before our doors close for good.”
The restaurant opened in 2017 in a ground floor space in the Meridia apartment building, 522 S. Boston Ave. Poke (pronounced “poe-keh”) is typically made with raw fish tossed over rice and topped with a variety of items, usually vegetables and fruits, and Poke Bowl Love served it in bowls or wrapped in what the shop called “burritos,” as they were much larger than a regular sushi roll.
