Poke bowl concept SweetFish is now open in downtown Tampa

The restaurant just celebrated its soft opening.


If you’re looking for some rejuvenation after a long night of drinking downtown, the newly-opened SweetFish—located at 811 Tampa St. next to Duckweed Urban Grocery—can help rid that hangover with its health-oriented menu of smoothies, poke bowls, pokerittos (poke burritos), detox shots and acai bowls. 

SweetFish’s build-your-own poke bowls feature fresh ingredients like yellowfin tuna, salmon, hamachi, grilled chicken and shrimp, served on a bed of white rice, cauliflower rice or mixed greens. All smoothies and detox shots are available for under $10 with kitschy names like “Detox and Chill,” “Celebrity in Recovery,” and “Barriers for Days.” 

This is the third concept from Phoenix Hospitality Group, which opened both Haiku and Eden Lounge and Nightclub in downtown Tampa earlier this year. David Reyes—the chef behind the Asian-fusion menu of Haiku—also pulls from similar influences for Sweetfish, as many of its offerings are inspired by Hawaiin and Japanese cuisine.  

Sweetfish is open ​​11 a.m.-10 p.m. everyday, with both indoor and outdoor seating available at this new downtown Tampa casual dining spot. Check out its Facebook for a full menu.
