The ribbon cutting ceremony will be joined by FreshFin Poké partners and community leaders. FreshFin Poké will provide free tastings of its signature bowls served hors d’oeuvre style.

Poké is a healthy, high protein, unique dish that is customizable. We are very excited to bring Poké to Milwaukee.” said Nate Arkush.
