KoKo...Is it a No No? - St. Louis

What happened to KOKO? I absolutely loved that place. Great duck gumbo and the zydeco fries were the bomb. Where did the owner and chef go?

  1. And KoKo willl be found ... where???

    1. I believe KoKo closed 2-3 months ago. I'm not sure where the chef and owner went.

      I'm assuming you're referring to the KoKo in St. Louis.

        Yes, the KOKO in St. Louis. Sorry. That's a shame. It was a fine little place to eat.

      2. A new spot opened in it's Asian fusion place I believe.

          I believe that one's gone down as well. Liquor license problems, as I recall.

        2. The current issue of St. Louis Magazine ("35 Best Restaurants") has an R.I.P. section, which has some comments about KoKo

          1. I'm from KC and I even got there. I liked it lots and so did my friends from the Lou. It was different. What took it's place was terrible.
