Island Poké to pop up at Kensington Place

Island Poké is ringing in the New Year with a West London pop-up at iconic restaurant, Kensington Place W8.

Having first opened in 1987, Kensington Place has since established itself as the first modern British brasserie in London and fair to say, a west London institution.

Opening on 17 January, the pop-up will be located adjacent to Kensington Place restaurant in its ‘fishmonger’ next door – an apt home for Island Poke who akin to its host, places fish at the centre of its offering.

A pop-up without compromise, Island Poke W8 will offer the brand's full menu including the signature Classic Ahi and Yuzu Lomi Lomi. Guests will also be able to build their own bowl or choose from one of the rotating guest bowls.

Popping up on 17 January and popping down on 10 February 2019, this will be Island Poke’s first West London venture allowing them to extend their Poke influence to an even wider audience and no doubt have The West screaming for more.

James Gould-Porter, Founder, Island Poké, said, 'Fans of Island Poké have been asking us for ages to open up in West London. So when Kensington Place invited us to have a residency, we jumped on it. Poke addicts can pop by over the three weeks to get the same Island Poké they know and love.”

Imants Zusmanis, General Manager said, 'We are very excited to be collaborating with Island Poke for 3 weeks and confident that their signature Hawaiian Poke Bowls will be a hit amongst West Londoners. Kensington Place will also be serving a special shrimp poke bowl following the pop up in the restaurant.'
