Updating the Dueling Poke Restaurants Swimming to Platte Street

Denver Poke Co. and Poke House are still “coming soon”

Two poke bowl ventures announced back in May originally hoped for summer debuts, but both projects promise to be coming soon to Platte Street, sitting less than a quarter of a mile apart.

Comparing the fast-casual concepts social media feeds, the “handcrafted” bowls of Poke House appear to have the advantage, dropping into a new building at the corner of 17th and Platte Street, next door to the Denver Beer Co.

In addition to create-your-own-bowls, the team hints of future menu items, including chicken katsu, steak with a creamy mac salad, basil popcorn chicken, nacho bowls with marinated tuna and wonton chips, plus lychee lemonade and fruit-nfused teas.

A short walk to the southwest, at the base of an apartment building at 1550 Platte St., Denver Poke Co. installed new exterior signage, but a mid-September Facebook update shows an ongoing interior remodel of the floor, new wall framing and no kitchen equipment yet installed.
