There’s a lot to like about the spiffy new Sweetfin poke shop, which landed yesterday along West Third Street. The mid-city west arrival is all blond wood and light touches, which is perfect for the elevated seafood fare found inside.

Step through the rounded front of the former Olio and into a comfortable, casual wraparound space that’s filled with light. There’s room along the thin marble bar looking into the kitchen, but most of the eye candy is meant for outside, with two-tops keeping tabs on West Third beyond. There’s ample patio space as well in the Brett Nestadt-designed buildout, right off the sidewalk.

The menu is the same as always, coming from chef Dakota Weiss, who has helped expand the brand into a poke powerhouse with plans for a national expansion. Their most recent effort up in Woodland Hills carries much the same tone as this latest iteration, and soon enough you could see Sweetfins all across the country.

Sweetfin West Third Street is open now, keeping daily hours from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
