Boise is set to get another palace of poke.

The former Right on Time Clock & Watch Repair shop on Vista next to Bruneel Tire will be remodeled into a new restaurant for Fish Poké Bar.

A $50,000 remodel will convert the shop into a restaurant with capacity for about 48 people – in a style described as “similar to a Subway,” according to permits filed with the City of Boise.

The applicant is the Qui family – which currently operates the Panda Garden restaurant on Overland Rd.

Separately, Michael Deeds notes that Paddles Up Poke, which opened a location downtown this year, is set to open a second location at McMillan and Eagle.
