NYC’s PokeWorks Chooses Location For First Houston Outpost

It’s set to open later this summer in the Heights


Back in November, Eater reported that New York poke chain PokeWorks would be packing its sushi doughnuts and heading to Space City. Now, the forthcoming eatery has announced more details on its Houston arrival.

CultureMap reports that PokeWorks will take over a former WhichWich space at 213 Heights Boulevard. The NYC-based poke chain is known for its “Chipotle-style” assembly line at which diners can assemble their own poke bowls made with raw ahi tuna, salmon, and for the vegetarians, cubes of tofu.

PokeWorks joins an already-robust raw fish scene in Houston thanks to recently-opened spots like Ono Poke, Moku Bar, Pokeology, and plenty more. Reportedly, this won’t be the only PokeWorks in Houston. According to CultureMap, its owners are already seeking out new locations in the area.

PokeWorks is expected to arrive in Houston in late August, which is right around the time that everyone in town will be in desperate need of a chilled meal.
