One minute poké is a casual Hawaiian classic, found all over the islands, the next minute it's the new it thing, the dish on everyone's tongue. If you don't know it, you will soon. At it's mostly basic, it's chunks of tuna marinated in soy and sesame. But everyone has their own interpretation so we stopped by the newly opened Wisefish Poke in Chelsea to try theirs. M. had the classic tuna while I went with salmon. The space itself is charming, bare and extremely loud. Even when the group of 10 next to us left, sounds rebounded against the hard surfaces in close to deafening levels. The bowls themselves are alright. Not worth the long walk, but decent enough if you're in the neighborhood. Despite the fresh ingredients, they're missing some kind of something something.
