As Bamboo Sushi continues to build its school across the country, a local offshoot is opening in the Pearl. QuickFish, Bamboo’s fast-casual “poke bowl” restaurant, will open its third location in the Heartline Building, the new development at 1241 NW Johnson Street. Sustainable Restaurant Group, the company behind both restaurants, has opened two other QuickFish locations in the US: The first in downtown Portland, and then a second in Denver.
QuickFish follows the model of other poke bars like Sea Sweets or Poke Mon: The restaurant has a variety of signature bowls, as well as a build-your-own option with choice of proteins, mix-ins, and sauces. What sets QuickFish apart is its sourcing. Like Bamboo, QuickFish includes the fish’s location and method of catch on the menu; for instance, its Albacore was caught off the Oregon coast with a hook and line, while its Bigeye tuna was caught off a deep set long-line in Hawaii. The new QuickFish will open August 15, joining spots like Kure Juice Bar and something called Little Bean, which appears to be some sort of frozen dessert shop.
