The 12 Days of Poke: Cafe Boulud on the Upper East Side

Eater’s senior critic continues his survey of NYC’s trendiest dish

On the Third Day of Poke, My True Love Gave to Me…

Yellowfin Tuna Poke from Café Boulud: And hey, this is one of the best you’ve ever tasted, featuring a slurry of sweet potato under a collection of red tuna cubes surmounted by a crunchy taro chip and a mandarin orange segment. Poke nirvana! Thanks, True Love! But, lacking rice, is it really poke? Of course, the original Hawaiian poke had no rice or salad ingredients. 20 E 76th St, 212-772-2600.
