Island Fin Poké Co., a newcomer to the Nashville dining scene, announced that its Nashville location has been honored with the prestigious “Best of Nashville” award in the category of “Best Poké.” This remarkable achievement comes just months after the restaurant’s grand opening in May 2023. 

The “Best of Nashville” awards, presented annually by the Nashville Scene, a popular alternative-weekly publication in Nashville, celebrate excellence in the city’s diverse culinary landscape and recognize businesses that stand out for their exceptional quality and service. Island Fin’s victory in the “Best Poké” category reflects the restaurant’s dedication to delivering a remarkable experience to the residents and visitors of Music City. 

Located at 70 White Bridge Pike, Island Fin Poké Co. has quickly become a favorite among locals and visitors, offering a refreshing and flavorful take on traditional Hawaiian poké bowls. Their commitment to using the freshest ingredients, sustainably sourced proteins, innovative flavors and an amazing guest experience has undoubtedly resonated with the Nashville community, resulting in this impressive accolade. 

“We are incredibly honored to receive the ‘Best of Nashville’ award for Best Poké,” says Tammy Fitzpatrick, franchise owner. “Ever since we opened our doors earlier this year, the warmth and love from the incredible people of Nashville have been truly heartwarming. This recognition means the world to our hardworking team, who pour their passion into every delicious, healthy and customizable poké bowl we serve.” 

At every Island Fin Poké Co. location, guests are treated to a multi-sensory journey. This means each time a guest experiences a poké bowl at Island Fin, they are experiencing the IncrediBOWL, which is personally crafted to the guest’s liking. Each poké bowl is meticulously crafted by the dedicated team members to cater to individual preferences. The menu has an array of eight protein options, including chicken, tofu, spam and traditional fish choices, such as the freshest boat-to-bowl tuna, salmon, shrimp and octopus. Most importantly, senses are heightened with the incredibly fresh combinations of flavors of poké, toppings, mix-ins and handcrafted sauces in every flavorful bite. 

Island Fin Poké Co. invites both newcomers and poké lovers to celebrate this achievement with them. They continue to offer a diverse menu of poké bowls, allowing guests to craft their own creations or choose from a range of signature bowls inspired by the vibrant flavors of Hawaii. 

The brand has also been recognized and celebrated through several noteworthy awards over the last six years. Most recently, they are ranked #29 on the 2023 Top New & Emerging Franchises list by Entrepreneur Magazine, a leading online franchise publication, and they were recognized as a top 100 Game Changer for 2022 by Franchise Dictionary Magazine. To be recognized, the brand had to fulfill an assortment of criteria, including impressing millennials, making an impact, serving their community, creating an opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs and filling a niche. 

With this recent award, Island Fin’s Nashville location solidifies its position as a must-visit dining destination in the heart of Music City. The restaurant remains committed to providing an unforgettable dining experience through bold flavors of the islands and looks forward to welcoming even more guests through its doors.
