On paper, Kokomo is a Caribbean spot in Williamsburg where you can get pastas, flatbreads, and more topped with things like jerk chicken and oxtail. All of that is true - but it’s also important to know that going to this place is just like attending a party. They run a KokoHour from 4-7pm with discounted drinks and often have live DJs on weekends. Whenever the weather is warm and you’re looking for an outdoor spot to get an exciting brunch, think of Kokomo.
