Blowfish Poke is the first restaurant to open with their signature Hawaiian food and wildly popular mochi donuts. They will be operating today and daily 11am – 8:30 pm.

The opening lineup also includes recently announced Taqueria Habanero and Alegria Bar, both founded by husband-and-wife team Mirna and Dionicio “Dio” Montero in 2014, and will serve up tacos and other traditional cuisine plus craft beers and cocktails, organic wines and light bites inspired by spirits and flavors throughout Latin America.

Grassfed Griddle will be set up outside Bryant Street Market providing breakfast for residents, visitors and commuters traveling through Rhode Island Metro Station or along the Metropolitan Branch Trail. Tiger Sugar will also be joining the lineup, providing their award-winning bubble tea derived from a proprietary eight-hour method of infusing syrups and tapioca pearls in their expansive menu, characterized by the unique “tiger stripes” created in the hand-poured drinks.
