POKE LOA

At long last poke (Hawai­ian street food of rice, fish and veg) has found its way to the NOLA din­ing scene. This bright spot on re­tail-packed Mag­a­zine Street of­fers build-your-own poke bowls of tuna, yel­low­tail, salmon and/or tofu cubes atop fresh greens, rice, lo­cally sourced veg­gies and an ar­ray of gar­nishes (edamame, fish roe, etc.). Grab a fizzy kom­bucha from the cold case and dive in … then get back to shop­ping. 3341 Mag­a­zine St., 504.309.9993

RAW REPUB­LIC

At this holis­tic hot spot or­ganic juices and smooth­ies are joined by a full menu and a re­frig­er­a­tor case filled with or­ganic, raw ve­gan meals. Try the kelp-noo­dle truf­fle mac and cheese, ve­gan curry “chicken” salad or the sur­pris­ing and di­vine “taco” salad with greens, pico de gallo and finely chopped wal­nuts that sub for ground beef. There are no wrongs here; ev­ery delicious dish is thought­ful to health and spirit. 4528 Mag­a­zine St., 504.324.8234

THE DAILY BEET

At this industrial-chic spot for light, healthy eats, fresh-pressed juices and lo­cal kom­bucha fill a cold case. Tuck into a sat­is­fy­ing “Or­bit” bowl of warm wild rice, avo­cado, runny egg, kim­chi and quick­pick­led veg­eta­bles tum­bled in a se­same-gin­ger dress­ing. Or take knife and fork to toasted semolina bread topped with avo­cado, cherry toma­toes, sea salt, chili flakes and a touch of olive oil. 1000 Girod St., 504.605.4413 —LG
