KOKOMO is the product of couple Ria and Kevol Graham’s vision to create a dining experience that transports guests to the islands of the Caribbean through food, music and cocktails.

KOKOMO’s menu is built around familiar island ingredients and traditional Caribbean dishes, all with a modern twist. The menu ranges consists of flat breads, comfort dishes, decadent desserts, and even vegan options. The restaurant also has an in-house mixologist and beverage consultant.

After visiting KOKOMO, we wanted to offer a few tips to help you decide on what to try.

Tips for brunch: Try the Pikliz Fish Sandwich or Koko’s Chicken and Waffles. For a vegetarian option, the Sweet Plantain Pancakes and vegan bowl will surely have you satisfied.

Tips for dinner: You have to try the Oxtail flatbread. Pair with a main entrée like Escovitch snapper. For vegan or vegetarian options, try the lentil meatballs in coconut curry sauce and jackfruit tacos.

Tips for cocktail and dessert menu: Special Good Juice Mango Rum Punch, RUDE GYAL, and I’m In Love With The KOKO are crowd favorites when it comes Caribbean-inspired drinks.

For dessert, try Passion Fruit Peach Cobbler. This warm mix of passion fruit and peach mixed with soursop ice cream is like a first class flight to our favorite island.
