Honi Poké to open in Islington

Hawaiian poké restaurant Honi Poké is to open in Islington after subletting surplus space from Chick ‘n’ Sours.

The group has taken a 794 sq ft unit adjacent to the fried chicken restaurant on Upper Street on a five-year sublease.

Chick ‘n’ Sours opened its 60-cover Islington restaurant​ in September 2018 after originally earmarking the site for its spin-off venture CHIK’N.

The location will be the fifth standalone London restaurant for Honi Poké, which launched in Soho in 2017​ and has since expanded to Marylebone, Hammersmith and the City.

The poké  concept is the brainchild of Kosta Varesko and Vladimir Martynov, the duo behind American grill and event business SkewerU.

“Honi Poké are going great guns at the moment, capitalising on the growing trend for sustainable, healthy, raw food and modern flavours,” says Sally French, associate director at Davis Coffer Lyons - which advised Chick ‘n’ sours on the deal.

“Upper Street is one of Central London’s most fertile dining locations but there were currently no poke concepts trading there.

"Honi Poké has amassed a great following and I’m sure we will be hearing news of more acquisitions from them before the end of the year.”
