If you can’t make it to the beach this summer, get a taste of the ocean with a poke bowl instead! This Hawaiian dish will leave you feeling as though you were kissed by a seaside breeze. Here’s where to find the best variations of poke in Westchester.

Bango Bowls

16 Harwood Ct, Scarsdale; 914.725.0555

This mini-chain doling out açai and smoothie bowls also puts poke on the menu. Build your own or choose from one of five preset options, including marinated ahi tuna with edamame, sweet onions, seaweed salad and avocado-poblano sauce, or spicy salmon that brings the heat with jalapeño, spicy furikake, and spicy mayo.

bartaco

1 Willett Ave, Port Chester; 914.937.8226

Despite all the tacos and guacamole, the tuna poke — cubed raw tuna with green and white onions, poke dressing, avocado, sesame seeds, and fried ginger — is one of our favorite orders at this summery Port Chester taco spot.

Chen’s Poke

175 Main St, White Plains; 914.831.5566

It makes sense that a restaurant with poke in the name would have a menu dedicated to the dish! The versatile bowls include the Dragon Bowl with octopus, eel, and shrimp, as well as a vegetarian tofu poke. If none of the creations tickle your fancy, you also have the option to build your own.

Eastchester Fish Gourmet

831 White Plains Rd, Scarsdale; 914.725.3450

Some of the freshest seafood comes from this award-winning restaurant, which serve it in the most unique ways. The poke is no exception, with sushi-grade ahi tuna, fish roe, sushi rice, crispy shallots, and pickled ginger.

Exit 4 Food Hall

153 E Main St, Mount Kisco; 914.241.1200

There are lots of creative options at Exit 4’s Inno Sushi (sushi burritos and sushi tacos, anyone?), but when it comes to poke, the signature bowls keep things relatively simple with tuna in classic condiments like spicy mayo or ginger, soy sauce, and sesame.

The Little Beet

125 Westchester Ave, White Plains; 914.620.1166

A healthier version of the poke bowl can be found in The Westchester’s food court, which is home to a fast-casual chain called The Little Beet. At this clean-sourcing eatery, fresh greens and spicy cold noodles serve as a bed for salmon poke and a yuzu vinaigrette. 

My Tokyo

31 Main St, Tarrytown; 914.909.4452

This contemporary Japanese restaurant focuses on sushi and Japanese tapas, but don’t forget to try the poke bowls featuring avocado, pickled cucumber, and ginger dressing. Pair your salmon or tuna bowl with a yuzu seltzer or ceremonial grade matcha affogato, or bring a bottle of your favorite sake; this little spot is BYOB.

Pubstreet

20 Wheeler Ave, Pleasantville; 914.909.5408

Reel in the perfect summer weekend by starting your meal with Pubstreet’s salmon poke “sushi fritters.” Salmon, avocado, and tamari glaze adorn little rounds of fried sushi rice in this one-of-a-kind appetizer that’ll have you wondering why you ordered it to share.

The Tasty Table

21 Campwoods Rd, Ossining; 914.762.4000

The Tasty Table challenges all of your preconceptions of breakfast and brunch places. Nestled among the hearty brunch dishes is a make-your-own poke, a fresh and unexpected change of pace from rich benedicts and pancakes. With a base of greens, quinoa, mango, and veggies, you can choose from four proteins to top your (poke brunch?) bowl.

Yard House

237 Market St, Yonkers; 914.375.9273

Poke can be spotted all over the menu at Yard House in Ridge Hill. For an appetizer, snack on the poke nachos, a pile of crispy wonton chips loaded with ahi tuna and drizzled with sriracha aioli and white truffle sauce. The poke salad poses as a lighter option, made of arugula, seaweed salad, edamame, masego, and cucumber with a soy vinaigrette.
