Great news for raw fish lovers, as the unstoppable poke trend rolls even deeper onto West Third Street next. Sweetfin Poke, one of the earlier iterations and backed by Dakota Weiss, has moved into the former Olio space at West Third and Crescent Heights.

Signage is newly up at the address, which has sat empty since pizzamakers Olio stepped away on December 10. Now construction will get underway again as the Sweetfin expansion eyes an early fall arrival, complete with lots of outdoor seating. There will also be beer and wine available (a first for the company across their various locations), a smart choice given the endlessly walkable neighborhood.

Sweetfin isn’t alone in serving poke on that stretch, though. Just two blocks down is Mainland Poke, another popular stop backed by Ari Kahan. Both will likely be able to live in peace, as the overall fast casual healthy eating trend isn’t planning on going anywhere soon.

Look for an early to mid-fall arrival for Sweetfin, which has already expanded from their Santa Monica original into Westwood, Topanga, and Larchmont. They’re eyeing a national presence as well.
