Co Co. Sala is part lounge, part restaurant—atlhough, let’s be honest, the entire restaurant feels like a giant lounge that you could stay at all night. We sat in the “booths.” The seats were cushy, the tables were small and cozy and started ordering up a storm. We started with drinks (a must here!)—the “Diletto” ranked as one of our favorites (vodka, fresh basil & strawberries, balsamic drizzle).
- “Shrimp Mac & Cheese”: Mini penne, jack & cheddar, garlic shrimp, jalapenos (amazing)
- Moroccan Swordfish Slider with fennel salad, aged pecorino, hazelnut coffee dressing
- Blue cheese beef slider with co co mole sauce, sauteed spinach, and wild mushrooms (my other fave)
- Crispy Louisiana Crabcake with mango salsa, chipotle chocolate tomato glaze, avocado cilantro emulsion
- Goat Cheese & Beets: Yellow and red beets, greens, maracaibo nibs, raspberry vinaigrette
And then… dessert. Dessert is an obvious must have here, and we had been keeping an eye out for what other guests were ordering. Although you can order certain desserts separately, we decided to get one of the flights (“monde du chocolat”)... there are four flights in total ranging from “chocolate maya” (focus on indian flavors), “ciocco” (focus on italian flavors), and “xocolatyl” (“aztec experience”). We jumped for the “co co. grown up”—a combination of “childhood favorites” made adult style.
Our three courses were:
- the amuse: mini boston cream doughnut and cappucino panna cotta
- the main dessert: milk chocolate, pb & banana foster split (yum), mini co co cupcake, malted shooter
- the petit fours: mint chocolate chip cone (eh), strawberry cheese cake lolly with pop rocks (yum)
A meal of decadence!
