Avo-Poke, one of the seven concepts at Lincoln South Food Hall, offers sustainable salads, poke bowls, and fresh juice. With a specialized chef from Hawaii, the approach of this restaurant is traditional and inventive, marinating ingredients for a longer period of time, allowing the flavors to combine and deepen.
Jeffrey Frederick, concept creator and partner in the LSFH project, explained the thought process behind Avo-Poke. “The idea is to offer a healthy and customizable experience with a massive number of tasty offerings, so a guest can make it their way. Whether you need a snack, you’re sitting down for a meal, or if you’ve missed a meal and/or just powered through a strenuous workout and are really hungry, we wanted Avo-Poke to be your go-to spot.”
