Poke Loa (3341 Magazine St., 504-309-9993; www.eatpokeloa.com), the city's first restaurant dedicated to the trendy raw fish dish, is expanding with a second location in Old Metairie this fall.
The fast-casual restaurant opened on Magazine Street in February, selling mix-and-match bowls of fish, rice, greens and toppings. The new location will open in the Old Metairie Village shopping complex at 701 Metairie Road. It will offer the same build-your-own-bowl assembly-line service as the frist location, as well as a mochi bar featuring several flavors (mango, plum, green tea) of the Japanese sticky rice and ice cream. The Metairie Road location will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
