Carlsbad is booming right now, with the opening of Campfire, Baba Coffee, Carruth Cellars, and Succulent Cafe, plus the soon to be opened Barrel Republic.
The people behind Blue Ocean Robata Sushi at 2958 Madison Street (same people behind Love Boat Sushi as well) are opening a fast casual Poke restaurant next door.
This pic is about a month old. I would say late November early December for the opening. Not a lot of details, it will be called Pokewan, a build your poke bowl concept like a lot of others that have popped up in San Diego over the last year.
