Why go running for poke when the poke can come running (well, rolling) to you?
Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises is betting that poke-on-demand will catch on, and so will launch ASAP Poke, a delivery-only service, July 11.
The concept is a collaboration of LEYE chefs Tim Hockett (M Burger, Nacional 27, Tallboy Taco), Naoki Nakashima (Naoki Sushi) and Hisanobu Osaka (corporate chef).
ASAP Poke will offer delivery lunch and dinner 11 am. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and 11:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The menu will feature four signature poke dishes, as bowls or maki rolls; customized combinations will be available. 16- and 24-ounce bowls will be priced at $9.95 and $12.95.
