Popular downtown Poké eatery expanding to bigger space

By Steve Cuozzo

 

PokéSpot, the popular Fourth Avenue eatery that promises “to put the power of poké in your hands,” is expanding its Hawaiian raw-fish luau to a larger downtown space.

Owners Russell Yam and Alex Lam have signed a lease for a 1,200-square-foot venue at 25 Cleveland Place, formerly home to a bistro called The Cleveland. Sources said the deal includes a 2,000- square-foot rear garden, which is expected to be open in time for summer.

The asking rent was said by neighborhood sources to be around $250 a square foot. None of the Eastern Consolidated brokers involved — James Famularo for the landlord and Jeff Geoghegan and Max Swerdloff for the tenant — responded to our requests for comment.

Poké combines raw seafood and rice in a bowl with myriad other elements — which at PokéSpot’s Fourth Avenue outlet include numerous grains, fruits, seaweed, toppings and condiments.
