Koibito Poké (Scottsdale, Ariz.), a fast-casual restaurant concept featuring traditional Hawaiian and Japanese flavors and ingredients, will open its second location in St. Louis, at the Ballpark Village complex near the home field of the Cardinals pro baseball team.

The new 1500-square-foot restaurant will be adjacent to Bally Sports Live! at 601 Clark Avenue and will feature an outdoor patio. Work on the space will begin soon, and an early 2023 opening is planned.

The restaurant is backed by former MLB pitcher Todd Stottlemyre, who pitched for the Cardinals from 1996 to 1998.

“When I walked through Ballpark Village on a game day, I knew we needed to open a location here,” Stottlemyre said in a news release. “The atmosphere is electric, and I can’t wait to be a part of the neighborhood. Pitching in St. Louis and wearing the Cardinals jersey was one of the highlights of my career. I’m excited to be back in downtown St. Louis to serve up our healthy and delicious food to the best fans in baseball.”

Koibito Poké, which features a build-a-bowl menu, opened its first St. Louis location in Des Peres in September, and a third is slated to open in Warson Woods next year.
