Sherman Oaks is in line for an interesting new concept, as The Joint looks to improbably marry the worlds of coffee and seafood, all under one roof.

Per sources, The Joint is looking to act as an all-day space where guests can swing by to pick up a coffee and pastry, or stay for dinner while nibbling on some affordably-priced ocean fare. What’s more, there will be a takeout component that allows guests to purchase market-rate fish to take home and cook themselves. Think of The Joint as you might a Santa Monica Seafood, where guests can shop and dine in equal measure. That, plus coffee throughout the day.

The Joint’s owner is none other than Liwei Liao, the onetime owner of The Boba Truck. His plans call for roughly 50 seats across indoor and outdoor tables, with a long 12-seat communal option in the middle of the dining area. There will be an open glass case displaying the seafood, and at the other end of the room a walk-up coffee and tea bar. Expect beer and wine as well.

Construction is still underway for the space, which is going to take a bit more time to come online. When it does, look for all-day hours that begin around 7 a.m. and end after dinner.
