UPTOWN — Pokiology is finally here.
After a monthlong wait, the quick-service restaurant serving poke and sushi bowls, at 4600 N. Magnolia Ave., will open at 11 a.m. Tuesday, according to owner Mark Nguyen.
The restaurant is located next door to the future home of Baker and Nosh and hopes to draw crowds from Truman College, said Nguyen, who picked the location after "seeing the development and wanting to be a part of it."
The concept for the restaurant hails from similar businesses in California, said Nguyen, who moved from California to Rogers Park about a year ago to partner with his brother to run Angry Crab, 5665 N. Lincoln Ave.
The restaurant will feature Chipotle-style line service and will have seating for 16 to 20 people. Meals will range from $10 for its regular portion to $16 for its large portion, he said.
Meals will feature rice and salad topped with a protein such as tuna, salmon or shrimp.
