If eating poke served Chipotle-style weirds you out a little, you are not alone. Pacific Catch does poke better than the typical fast-casual spot, and also has rice or salad bowls, stir-fries, and generally delicious seafood at a reasonable price point in a super casual Marina set-up. It’s an easy place to pop into, and they do a solid happy hour as well.
