Another option in the already-crowded Venice poké scene, Wild Poké is also one of the best. There are set bowls or build-your-own options, and the big chunks of sushi-worthy tuna are as good as you’ll find. We like the spicy option - the sriracha mayo adds a creamy factor and the crispy garlic is a nice touch. Yes, this is poké worth braving the boardwalk for. Just this once.
