Inspired by his heroes and uncles, Johnson says, “they were hard to get to know, tenacious, humble, a bit of kolohe — they can be rascals, but very honorable. They’re my heroes, and they’re of all nationalities.”
Guests will get the same delicious menu as the original Pier 38 location with classics like the Sushi Bowl and all their poke specialties, including their famous Poke Bowl, the Poke Trio, and the Poke Tower. Guests can also look forward to seeing some new menu items in the future.
