The name Humble Fish is a reference to the origins of the Hawaiian dish of poke (poh-kay)—chopped raw fish and seasonings over rice—when people sought a tasty way to make use of leftover or less prime cuts of fish. At Humble Fish, all of the fish is fresh, never frozen, and the tuna is wild-caught. (The menu is entirely dairy-free and mostly gluten-free.) Currently, there are seven varieties of poke, served in two sizes, along with a handful of snacks. The options will be updated now and then. The space—most recently Café Noir, and before that, 35 Thai—has been reborn as a light, airy room that seats around 35. At night, the lights are dimmed and candles brought out; beer and wine are available.
