Nevada-based poké and sushi burrito restaurant FinBomb is moving into Arlington Marketplace, says Justin Langlois with SVN Graham, Langlois & Legendre. 

The eatery, partly-owned by Baton Rouge businessman Charlie Henry, focuses on contemporary Japanese and Hawaiian cuisine, according to its website. The Arlington Marketplace location will be the second location for FinBomb, which opened in Reno, Nevada, last year. Henry was unable to be reached for more information before this morning’s deadline.

Multiple poké restaurants have opened in Baton Rouge this year. Last fall, Poké City opened on Bluebonnet Boulevard last fall, Southfin Southern Poké opened its second location on Corporate Boulevard and New Orleans-based Poké Loa opened a restaurant on Highland Road.  

MID TAP, a new craft beer taproom, is also moving into a 2,100-square-foot space in the shopping center. The taproom, which was originally planned for Government Street, will have seating for some 50 people and will have a fenced, outdoor seating area.

Taproom owner Rick Patel previously told Daily Report that the taproom was inspired by taverns in coastal U.S. communities and will have an upscale sophisticated feel, offering 50 craft beers and wines. Patel is opening the business with his wife, Needhi, and Florida businessman Sam Parikh.
