Author Bio

James Gould-Porter is a British-born restaurateur who was raised between Hawaii and California. After studying History of Art in Florence he went on to work at renowned auction house Bonhams. In 2012 James made his first foray into the street-food industry selling Tuscan delicacy bolito on London’s Brick Lane. Hooked on the buzz of street-food, he left the art world and bolito behind to focus on his true passion, poké. James trained under an ex-Nobu sushi chef before starting to sell poké in street-food residency Little Feast. With investment from ex-Soho House commercial director Chris Miller, the first Island Poké restaurant opened in Soho in November of 2016 and a second Island Poke restaurant opened in Liverpool Street in July 2017.
