Pokéworks is another poke place because apparently someone decided that poke is the new salad, and now everyone’s just going with it. And as long the poke is good, we’re willing to go along. The stuff here isn’t bad, and they even have shrimp, tofu, and chicken. Which begs the question: is chicken poke actually poke? No, silly. Of course it isn’t. And neither are their poke burritos. Still, if you need a quick, sort-of-healthy lunch, this is a good Midtown option.
