Thanks to public records, we've learned that David Fukuda, one of the partners in La Mar Cebicheria Peruana, has filed to open a business called Poke Cali, LLC, at 36 Battery St.

We reached out to La Mar's public relations team and were told Fukuda has no comment, but it would make sense that he might be planning to offer poke (one of the hottest—or make that coolest—food trends for 2016) in the FiDi, given La Mar's rep as one of the better raw fish flingers in town.

However, the address is fishy, too: 36 Battery is a parking garage attached to 1 Front St. But there's an empty space next door at 40 Battery St., which used to house John's Snack and Deli. Let us know if you know more about this mystery.
