Lower King hangout Beech opened earlier this month at 315 King St. with a menu of smoothies, juice, wraps, acai bowls, bagels, and the promise of poke. Today, all those raw fish dreams come true as the kitchen at Beech releases poke bowl options.

New to poke? Here’s a quick explainer from Eater: “Poke is a classic Hawaiian dish comprised of sliced, raw fish and various mix-ins. Most traditionally, poke was made from fish, salt, local seaweeds, and chopped Hawaiian kukui nuts. “

The poke at Beech gives patrons a choice of tuna, salmon, or tofu with a base of rice, kale salad, or zucchini noodles. Sauces include wasabi aioli, sriracha aioli, lemon miso aioli, and a ginger sauce. Diners can also pick from a number of additions like avocado, macadamia nut, onion flakes, and more.

Beech opens Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
