BENSONHURST/BATH BEACH – Where there is one, there will be more – places offering poke bowls seem to be popping up all over Brooklyn and not just north of the Park, this spring.
Poke Nom opened at the beginning of the month oat 2145 86th Street, between Bay 28th and Bay 29th, promising fresh poke, ice cream and more. The look is clean and minimal, with a large graffiti mural on one wall and a neon Nom-Nom-Nom sign on the other.
For right now it offers three kinds of fish (salmon, tuna and special that rotates every two weeks and is currently yellow tail tuna). We did not try their vegan salmon, but neighbors on yelp like it. Portions are generous, and cost between $11 and $14 for their signature bowls.
They also have soft serve ice cream in a couple of flavors.
Just a block down, Snow & Cream is opening their second Poke Bowl Station at 2037 86th Street (old Palazzo shoe place), possibly as soon as this Saturday. Their other location is on 7th Avenue between 61st and 62nd streets, and gets good reviews.
They were busy setting everything up when we poked our head in yesterday, and interior is in line with their other spot – warm and rustic.
