Seafood lovers in Reston have a new place to visit.

PokeHub had its grand opening at 11990-C Market Street in Reston Town Center on Tuesday. The build-your-own-bowl menu of offers several varieties of poke (pronounced “po-kay”), a traditional Hawaiian salad made with raw fish. Owner Chloe Lee said the menu at PokeHub is a “poke fusion,” as options include not just the traditional ahi tuna, but also salmon, spicy tuna, tilapia, scallops, shrimp, chicken, sweet egg and tofu.

GRAND OPENING TODAY! … FINALLY..! :)Stop by PokeHub in Reston Town Center for some fusion poke bowls, salads,…

Lee and her husband moved to the DC area about three years ago from California, where they operated a poke restaurant in Pasadena. She said they have been searching for the right location to open one in Northern Virginia, and the 1,152-square foot location within the Retail at Midtown property was it. The space owned by the JBG Companies is the former home of Iceberry, which closed in April.

Lee said they are looking for a site to open a second restaurant in the region.

PokeHub will be open each weekday from 10:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

    Eh. This seems like a cool place to go, but, its not a Hooters. Reston needs a Hooters.

      Oh, because we don’t have any of those at RTC?

      Forget RTC, try the “Tilted Kilt” at DTC, it’s “American” enough. :p

    Okay, so for those that actually LOVE the taste of fresh fish, here is the deal…
    You go through the line and pick out the various items you want included (I chose the ‘bowl’ but they have burrito and taco versions and salads)
    • You begin with rice selection (white or brown)
    • Pick out the base items to include (I picked edaname and thin cucumbers slices.. there are a few you can pick from)
    • You then get the meat choice (small 2 scoops, medium 3, large 4). I picked 1 salmon and 2 shrimp.
    • You can then top if off with a sauce mix and misc items (I picked avocado, crab meat, and chipotle mayo and seaweed flakes).
    Overall, its really good tasting and I am impressed by the spin on sushi. If you think CAVA or Chipotle “assembly line” where you point and move down the line towards the cashier, this is routine but it’s sushi. Worth a visit if you like sushi. Prices are $12-$16 for a bowl which is the equivalent of 2 rolls really and more food imo than 2 rolls.
    Kudos to the owners and I wish them luck at attracting customers! I will be returning for sure.
