Chikarashi Poke Arrives in NoMad

The sensational Chikarashi Poke opens its second location in NoMad.


NoMad continues to expand its offerings for world cuisine. Whether you are in the mood for fast-casual or fine dining, NoMad has options to satisfy almost anyone frequenting this bustling live/work neighborhood. The cuisine of poke is all the rage in New York City and NoMad now has more  than one restaurant offering the culinary sensation, with the recent opening of Chikarashi.

As reported by Eater, Chikarashi arrives in the neighborhood with its second location in New York City, and joins Maui Onion as the second poke-specific restaurant in NoMad. From its original location in Chinatown, Chikarashi has gained a notable reputation for its Japanese take on traditional Hawaiian poke.

Helmed by chef Michael Jong Lim, Chikarashi embraces the Japanese rice bowl tradition of chirashi, creating a cross-pollinated menu that features inventive fish toppings like Sichuan chili salmon, roasted Scottish salmon collar and cod with a white miso glaze. There are also tasty vegetarian topping options, such as sautéed silken tofu.

Head to Chikarashi the next time you are looking for something new in NoMad, and find out why food critic Robert Sietsema of Eater considers the restaurant to be the “best poke” in New York City!
