Pokéworks, a growing fast-casual Hawaiian-style eatery with 56 restaurants open across the U.S. and Mexico, later this week will open its Cumberland location, at 2980 Cobb Parkway Suite 172, Sam Cooper, the location’s team leader, confirmed in an email Monday to What Now Atlanta.
Pokéworks features the familiar serving line in which diners can “Poké Their Way” by customizing their own bowls of fish, veggies, garnishes, and Pokéworks’ signature sauces. Chicken, shrimp, and tofu offer an alternative to salmon or ahi tuna, and all can be made into a rice bowl, burrito, salad, or nachos. Pokéworks offers an array of toppings that includes macadamia nuts, lotus root chips, and cream cheese. Side snack options include Hawaiian Spam Mabusi and Coco Mango Haupia and Dole whip for dessert.
While the menu is customizable, Pokéworks has partnered with a Maui native and Top Chef alum Sheldon Simeon, to develop bowls labeled “Signature Works” that combine specific ingredients.
The restaurant, situated in the Cumberland Festival shopping center, will be open for third-party platform deliveries starting Friday, October 16, from 11:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m, and open for the general public starting on Saturday, October 17.
