The fresh and vibrant restaurant Miko Poké opened on Monroe Street three weeks ago in the old Bluephies location — and it is already becoming a neighborhood favorite.

The new Hawaiian-inspired destination serves healthy and high quality poké dishes from a list of house favorites and build-your-own options. They also offer mouthwatering sweets such as flavored shaved ice and a variety of tropical beverages. Miko Poké’s menu is completely gluten and dairy free.

The Hawaiian Style, made of rice, ahi tuna, avocado, edamame and cucumbers, topped with sliced scallions and drizzle of the poké sauce, garlic chile oil and spicy aioli, is considered a traditional poké combination.

Miko Poké will soon be a sister-restaurant to the yet-to-be-opened Everly, which will be housed next door. Everly is a Californian, casual sit down restaurant that will open at the end of October. This restaurant will offer a variety of foods for those with varying levels of dietary restrictions.

“We’re not going to be exclusively gluten free at Everly, but those who have allergies or preferences will have a wide range of options to choose from,” said Ben Brady, general manager of Miko Poké and Everly.

Brady noted that Everly will focus primarily on grains and vegetables, but will also offer the classic burgers and steaks.

Both restaurants have separate concepts and Executive Chef Scott Harrell will pave a unique path for each. Miko Poké and Everly will share a liquor license at the end of October as well.
