The poké craze has come (by way of Hawaii… then Los Angeles) to NYC, and we are VERY thankful. We were getting a little impatient, teased by Intagrams from the left coast of beautiful, healthful looking poké bowls, DIY-ed and topped with jalapenos and avocado and everything that is good and right in the world. But we must wait no longer. NYC now has MULTIPLE places for us to get our poké bowl on. Or in. Our mouths.
This Hawaiian restaurant has lots more than poké, but their calamari and poké bowls are not to be missed. Hit Noreetuh up for your sit-down, civilized, poké experience.
