Pokito is just as much a bar as it is a restaurant. It’s a quirky little spot that feels trendy, but not at all pretentious. It’s also extremely casual, as evidenced by the pulley system they use to get the food from the basement kitchen to the bar (which is where you’ll also place your order).

For cocktails, you’ll drink something that would fit in way better on a beach than under the Williamsburg bridge (which is essentially where this place is located), and to eat there’s a small but extremely solid menu of Latin-Asian mashups. Our favorite things here are the Coco Bowl (with crispy coconut rice and plantains) and the Green Bowl with added katsu chicken. This is the rare spot that works equally well for kicking off your Saturday night as it does for a Tuesday when you just need something fast, quick, and kind of healthy.
