PokéSpot Expands with New Location on Cleveland Place, Now Open
Union Square fast-casual Poké dispensary, PokéSpot, is ready for you to open your wallets. The expansion outpost debuted at 25 Cleveland Place this month.
As you might expect, this second locale for the company is basically a carbon copy of the Union Square original – antiseptic and offering a wide selection of bowls, which can also be customized. The Little Italy spot, however, is smaller and more airy, with French doors that open onto the sidewalk.
We put the power of poké in your hands.
At The Pokéspot, we provide our guests with the perfect poke bowl by sourcing fresh ingredients and creating unique flavor combinations. The quality of our food and energy of our staff create an experience that satisfies the palate and cultivates meaningful relationships.
As for the lineage of 25 Cleveland Place itself, this particular address has seen plenty of turnover the last few years. The American-style foodie favorite, The Cleveland, closed in November 2014 after a short tenure on the block. There were rumors at the time that the property would eventually fall to accommodate a new ultra luxury hotel. However, nothing of the sort ever materialized, not even building permits. Then a year later, CopVsDrop moved in and maintained a consignment-slash-Bitcoin boutique which lasted until a couple months ago.
