    A group of dining spots featuring a couple of increasingly-trendy food items will be opening a third Boston-area location.

    According to a press release, Pokeworks is planning to open at the upcoming Arsenal Yards complex in Watertown, joining existing locations in Somerville's Davis Square and Cambridge's Harvard Square. Expect to see poke (a Hawaiian raw fish salad) as well as "pokirritos" (a type of sushi burrito) at the upcoming eatery, which is headquartered in Irvine, CA, and currently has nearly 20 locations across the United States.

    Arsenal Yards will be a mixed-use development located at the site of the old Arsenal Mall, with the complex including retail, office, and residential space. As reported earlier, a location of Shake Shack will also be moving into the development.
