Remember when the first couple poke spots opened in New York, and then a hundred more seemed to pop up overnight? Either you answered yes, or we owe a belated congratulations to you and the rest of the Class of 2017. Now it seems like there are poke spots on every corner, but Chikarashi is our favorite. Unlike places where you build-your-own bowl and often end up with a lot of rice and some mashed spicy tuna, Chikarashi serves set bowls with fair portions of fresh fish. There are some seats along the walls, but the small space gets packed on weekdays, so plan on taking it to go.
