It's not hard to eat fresh, healthy food when there are restaurants like Coco & Moss serving it! This enticing new eatery specializes in sushi and poke, and it's the perfect place to stop for a lunch or dinner you don't have to feel guilty for enjoying.
Coco & Moss aims to blend the beauty and cuisine of the tropics with the friendly atmosphere of Savannah, Georgia. The word Coco represents the coconuts from the owners' heritage, and Moss represents the Spanish moss so common throughout Georgia.
Inside, Coco & Moss has a fresh, boutique-like atmosphere. The bar is white with attractive brown stools, and creative drawings on the window depict waves, coconut trees, and the tropics. In the evening, they light candles on the table to add to the ambiance.
The menu at Coco & Moss starts off with a simple list of appetizers, such as edamame, seaweed salads, and tuna tartare. They have a great selection of maki sushi and hand rolls, such as the spicy shrimp roll and blue crab roll. If you're in the mood for something truly tropical, try one of the poke bowls. As per Hawaiian tradition, they contain marinated tuna or salmon, along with fresh salad ingredients like cucumber, avocado, scallions, and mint.
Coco & Moss also serves warm rice bowls, like the Red Sea bowl, which comes with roasted chicken, sushi rice, cilantro, scallions, lime, cucumber, red curry coconut milk, and roasted peppers.
Don't forget to order a signature cocktail to go with your meal. The Bird on a Wire, featuring tequila, mint, and lime, is a crowd favorite. Guests also live Open Sesame, made with rum, toasted sesame seeds, banana liquor, and lime.
