The Poke Co. is your best choice before a hike or day trip when you’re looking to grab something “now now” (a real phrase used by people across the country to describe “immediately”). This is the local go-to fast-casual spot because of the high-quality, sustainable fish they serve and sauces so good that we may have had friends smuggle a few bottles on their flight home. If you’re in town for First Thursdays - when art galleries, bars, and restaurants open late and everyone fills the streets - you’ll find lots of locals starting their nights here.
