TRIBECA — Hawaiian-style poke — seemingly one of the city's hottest food trends — is headed to TriBeCa.

Pronounced po-kay, the dish, which means "to cut" in Hawaiian, comes in a variety of forms, but the fast-casual New York version has centered around cubes of seasoned fish in a bowl with rice or greens.

That's what customers will find when Humble Fish, coming to 35 Lispenard St., opens its doors in mid-February, said owner Jonathan Chong.

The grab-and-go eatery has a Chipotle-like setup: choose a fish, like tuna or salmon, add a sauce, such as yuzu lime or creamy sriracha, plus a base of rice, salad or "kelp noodle slaw," then extras including mango, wasabi peas and extra spices.

The 10-table eatery will also have beer and wine.

Hours are slated for 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
