FreshFin Poke slated to open Brookfield location

The western suburbs will soon have their first taste of FreshFin Poke, the East Side fast casual restaurant that's made a name for itself by serving fresh, healthy poke bowls.

According to co-owner Nate Arkush, a lease was signed this week with The Corners of Brookfield for a retail space located just around the corner from lululemon and adjacent to the forthcoming CycleBar.

"It's an ideal location," says Arkush, who notes the restaurant is likely to open sometime in spring of 2018. "We're really excited about the demographic in Brookfield. There's been so much excitement generated by the development and The Corners of Brookfield folks have done a great job of connecting with the community and really pulling together a great mix of businesses."

According to Arkush, the Brookfield will have a similar look and feel to the East Side location. The menu will be the same, including signature bowls and the option to build-your-own poke bowls. Hours will also reflect those at the East Side location, with service from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week. However, it will occupy 2,100 square feet, nearly double that of the original North Avenue eatery.

"We're excited to open in a larger space where we can provide more seating options, particularly to accommodate families," notes Arkush, who says he's also encouraged by the success generated by other restaurants in the development. "It's a busy place, and we're excited to bring a healthy, fast casual concept to the area."

The location will be the third for FreshFin, whose Third Ward location is slated to open on Thursday, Nov. 30.
