Everywhere You Need to Eat in NYC Right Now

The gist: Wife-and-husband duo Ria and Kevol Graham have created a tropical paradise of sorts near the Williamsburg waterfront with Kokomo, a restaurant focused on Pan-Caribbean flavors. Since opening during the initial summer of the pandemic, the spot’s bright energy and vibrant menu items have made it a popular addition to its local dining scene. With Ria’s industry background in Caribbean restaurants and Kevol’s hospitality experience in events of over 13 years, from decor to menu, the culinary destination they’ve created continues to be a much needed (and appreciated) place of celebration for New Yorkers. The restaurant also recently launched a private dining room and also offers heated outdoor seating.
The food: Starters include Crispy Fish Tacos; Coconut Curry Mussels; and Seafood “Cake” with chadon beni remulade. Choose from signature wood-fired flatbreads in five varieties like Wild Roasted Mushroom along with mains like Slow-Braised Oxtail; Chicken & Waffles with house-made syrup and coconut whipped cream; Koko’s Island Pasta with island cream sauce; Jerk Chicken; a signature Burger with guava BBQ and cilantro sauce; and seafood dishes like Salmon filet or Snapper. Dedicated vegan selections include Jackfruit Tacos; Lentil Meatballs in coconut curry; and Pasta in a Cashew Raiso sauce. Pair it with cocktails like the Rude Gyal (rum, coconut cream, nutmeg), the Special Good Juice Mango Rum Punch, or the new boozy almond milk hot chocolate with toasted marshmallow whipped cream.
