Top-notch ingredients flown in from the motherland ramp up the authenticity quotient at this Peruvian stronghold in Park Slope. Start with a pitcher of potent fruit-stocked burgundy sangria, fortified with imported Inca Cola and pisco—you’ll need it to take the edge off the heady food to follow. Tart ceviches and toothsome small plates like pulpo al olivo (rosemary-seasoned octopus in an olive sauce) are a fine way to kick things off. A rotisserie oven pumps out moist, crisp-skinned birds; seafood offerings, like the delectable cau cau de mariscos—a garlicky shellfish stew—are not to be missed.
After a few years of searching, I found the perfect space in 1998. Ever since I saw it I knew it was right: a fish and seafood restaurant, Ceviche, grilled meats, rotisserie chicken, Pisco sours with Take-out and Delivery - a new gastronomic experience in Park Slope.
By this time, my ideology of work was making a great team, recruiting the best for each area. In order to better meet my goal, I decided to call my brothers Albino and Fernando, who had as much experience as I do. Today we're known by everyone in the neighborhood as the" COCO ROCO’S Brothers."
COCO ROCO has gone through all the stages of life, consolidating a name and trajectory of good food with good service, not only that many tried to copy it, but conquering the preference of our customers who safeguard our permanence in time. Today, thanks to these life experiences, I learned that business is business and dreams come true in America.
