    Earlier this year, a James Beard Award Winner opened a new restaurant in South Boston that focuses mainly on Italian food. Now she is planning to open another spot, with this one being inside a grocery store near the downtown area of the city.

    According to an article from Eater Boston, Karen Akunowicz is planning to open SloPoke within the Whole Foods Market in the Charles River Plaza near where the West End borders Beacon Hill. The new eatery from Akunowicz, who opened Fox and the Knife in Southie in February, will feature poke bowls that include pre-set, customizable, and pre-made grab-and-go, with tuna, salmon, and shrimp being seafood options while sweet potatoes and tofu will be a couple of non-seafood options.

    Eater says that SloPoke plans to open on May 10.

    The West End location of Whole Foods is at 181 Cambridge Street in Boston, while the Instagram page for SloPoke can be found at https://www.instagram.com/slopoke_bos/
