EATER LA // Mainland Poke, a Sleek Chopped Fish Paradise in Glendale

Glendale earns a little Mainland Poke today, with the fresh seafood concept arriving along Brand Boulevard by around noon.

The soft-opening of Mainland Poke in Glendale represents the first in a long phase of coming attractions for the Caruso Affiliated team, which owns The Americana across the street and has been keen to drop in every other big name nearby, be it Eggslut or Shake Shake.

With Mainland, the look as been brushed up and streamlined from the Third Street original. Consider this address a model for future locations — including one coming to Marina del Rey in the near future — with some fun wood detailing and lots of glass thanks to architect AbramsonTeiger. The back ordering counter offers the same DIY seafood bowl options, with the addition of a big open window looking into the kitchen behind, so guests can watch as whole fish get broken down by hand.
