Dallas-based Malibu Poke is expanding in Austin for the first time, with a menu created by FT33 chef Matt McCallister. The restaurant will be found in downtown Austin at the Seaholm District on 211 Walter Seaholm Drive sometime in the fall.

Malibu owner Jon Alexis worked with the James Beard Award-nominated McCallister on the menu. The fast-casual menu spans customizable poke bowls with tuna, salmon, tofu, shrimp, and more, with various bases (rice, cauliflower rice, seaweed, etc.), toppings, and sauces (spanning aioli, ponzu, and curries). For drinks, there will beer, wine (frosé too), sake, and non-alcoholic options. Scope out the full menu below.

This Malibu Poke also boasts of its ordering kiosks with facial recognition software. The space will be designed by one of Austin’s go-to architects Michael Hsu.

Alexis and partners Ben and Eric Kusin opened the first Malibu Poke in late 2017 in Dallas. Alexis also owns market and restaurant TJ’s Seafood in Dallas. They’re looking into expanding with other Austin locations as well.
