I had the pleasure of dining at KoKo on Sunday evening. I arrived ahead of the email from Open Table to the restaurant, but they accomodated me with a smile. The menu had some standard Japanese dishes that you would expect, but the Korean influence as really pleasant! In particular, the Kimchi pancake is a definite repeat for my business trip next week.
Notably, at least half the clientele were on a first name basis with the restaurant staff/owners(?). There was a genuiness to the exchange, hugs included.
The restaurant also accomodated a larger party while I was there too, seamlessly.
