Poke Restaurant to Fill Market Street Space Left by Iceberry

A Market Street storefront that until recently housed a frozen yogurt shop is being advertised as the future home of a raw-fish eatery.

Signage at 11990-C Market St. promotes a restaurant called PokeHub as coming soon to the space. That was the home of Iceberry, which closed April 30 after 10 years in business.

Very little information is available about PokeHub. A website listed for the restaurant provides no further details as of yet.

Poke (pronounced “po-kay”) is a traditional Hawaiian salad made with raw fish, often yellowfin or bigeye tuna. It has become very popular nationally in recent years, and it is on the menu of several restaurants in the area.

The 1,152-square foot location is within the Retail at Midtown property, which is owned by the JBG Companies. Other retail establishments on the property include Il Fornaio, Roosters, Subway, Midtown Jewelers, BB&T and Midtown Kabob. The address is also home to the Midtown Condominiums.

We have left a message with JBG and this article will be updated if more information about the new tenant is provided.

    Oh good, I was worried it was going to be an eatery catering to the tastes of “Pokèmon Go” players.

    I never had poke but looks great. The link lists Ariake as having it but can’t find it on their menu. What would I order there if I wanted to try poke? If its not on the menu I really don’t want to ask them for a poke.
    Thanks

      Poke rhymes with OKAY, not JOKE. Makes it a bit less awkward to order 😉

      Poke dishes are currently also available at Jackson’s and at Bartaco.

    Does Midtown charge for retail parking? They are not BP and I have never parked in their garage.

      Wait for it. Wait for it. Wait for it. June 1st announcement… free parking after 5 PM and before 7 AM. Then again, Boston Properties is running the circus.
