Fish Bowl Poké, an Hawaiian poké concept, could be expanding its Atlanta footprint.

The restaurant, from the DUA Vietnamese team, is listed as “coming soon” on the Sweet Auburn Curb Market website.

A permit application last month was also filed with City of Atlanta to “fit-out” suite 110 in the historic market, at 209 Edgewood Avenue SE, for the poké concept.

The new Sweet Auburn market stall would be the second Atlanta location for the restaurant. The first is situated on Broad Street near Georgia State University.

Fish Bowl Poké would join eateries like Sweet Auburn BBQ, Grindhouse Killer Burgers, and sister concept DUA II Go, in the downtown market.

Mylinh Cao, one of the owners behind Fish Bowl Poké and DUA, did not immediately return What Now Atlanta’s request for comment.

  1. This market is getting waaaay oversaturated with Poke way too quickly. And it’s a trend that I don’t expect to translate well in Atlanta. In order to be high quality, uncooked fish is pricey. You can’t have cheap, high quality uncooked fish. So either it’s low quality, or it’s expensive. Atlanta doesn’t generally support expensive. Thus, I think either these concepts won’t fare well due to high price, or they won’t fare well due to low quality. Plus, Atlanta is not a great place to get affordable quality uncooked fish, especially tuna. I’ve been to these places in Santa Monica, CA, where you’d think they’d have the best chance of being well executed – they generally felt unsanitary and had an unfresh odor. My hunch is people will think it’s cool to say they go to Poke places for a little while, but due to high price and/or low quality, they traffic will decline over time. Especially with all the new entrants. But we’ll see – I could be wrong.
