EatBeat: Coco Palm Beach Closed

June 14th, 2011 · 2 Comments

According to the front desk person at the Bradley Park Hotel in Palm Beach, Coco, the Asian restaurant in its building has closed. “For good,” is how she put it, though she wasn’t forthcoming with other information. We’ve been unable to reach principals there to discuss it; the phone goes unanswered and has no voicemail.

No word on what happened to the restaurant that opened in 2005, but factors likely include the slow economy that’s touched even the Palm Beachers, and the tear-down of the Publix nearby.  The Asian foods, including sushi, were popular with diners on and off island.

    I heard the rent was astronomical. With a seasonal place like Palm Beach, who could afford to keep a business running? Sad, the food was great as well as the staff 🙁

    I’m always sorry to lose a locally owned restaurant.
