LemonShark Poke is expanding to Georgia.
The California-based poke franchise from former The Wallflowers guitarist Toby Miller, in summer 2019 will open in Sandy Springs.
It will be situated in a new mixed-use community called The Bishop, according to a press release Monday.
The restaurant will occupy a 2,500-square-foot space in the Pollack Shores development, at 1115 Springwood Connector.
The project also includes neighboring retail and approximately 400 luxury apartments.
D.J. Fuchs is the franchisee bringing Georgia’s first LemonShark Poke to the market.
He plans to open multiple LemonShark Poke locations around the city as the franchise continues to grow.
In addition to poke, the restaurant will boast an oyster bar and a “beer wall.”
The menu also includes shareable appetizers such as tempura shrimp and egg rolls and its Hawaii Katsu menu that features cooked-to-order, entrées of chicken, Alaskan cod and more.
The company, founded in 2017, has 16 locations (and counting.)
It is named after the Lemon Shark which “only consumes the very best fish possible.”
Associate Director Chris Dundon of Newmark Knight Frank represented the tenant.
Charlie Banks and Jack Arnold from Stream Realty represented the landlord.
