Seafood

When poke was first introduced to the New York dining scene, it was done so in a fast-casual, cafeteria-style format. Michael Jong Lim (previously of Neta and Masa) is giving the Hawaiian dish the fine-dining treatment at Chikarashi, his "sea-to-table" restaurant in Chinatown. The poke at Chikarashi is a take on the traditional Japanese chirashi dish, meaning that the kitchen uses a variety of raw fish, not just the usual salmon and tuna found in many a poke bowl.
