(Long Island, N.Y.) The most enchanting dining room in East Hampton is unquestionably CoCo Restaurant in the Maidstone Arms Inn. Its sumptuous setting is perfectly decorated to create a tropical oasis. The décor and menu are strictly Asian-Island theme with spicy dishes, splendicious flowers and exotic orchids that created the perfect setting for my Television Celebrity Interview at the Maidstone Arms Inn.
CoCo recently opened in Mid-February and now occupies the main dining room.
Proprietor Sammy Krasniqi immediately greeted me while escorting my entourage to our exquiste banquette reserved table.
CoCo is charming cozy and intimate. I especially loved our banquette corner surrounded by plush colorful luxurious pillows seated next to the warm glow of the fireplace, just perfect on that chilly summer night.
Dining is fabulous with soft music, skirted elegantly appointed candlelit tables dressed in starched white linen while Chef Sammy is preparing his masterpieces in the kitchen.
During my delightful visit to CoCo my guests and I enjoyed the opulence of flavor in nearly every dish, in harmony with the amplitude of the menu and the spaciousness of the setting.
Fish and seafood play major roles on the menu. The Scrimp is the signature dish at the restaurant. I especially enjoyed the grilled salmon and fried calamari.
They also serve a delicious pasta primavera for vegetable eaters who do not partake in eating beef or fish.
CoCo Restaurant is located in the Maidstone Arms Inn, 207 East Hampton, NY 11937
631-324-5494. Reservations are recommended. Dinner starts at 5:30 pm.
For a romantic, quiet cozy little banquette dining in the corner, I highly recommend CoCo Restaurant.
