“Dear PoPville,

Hey there – is there any update on when Little Coco’s construction is going to start? Still no construction movement seen, although construction is moving along for the Golden Paradise restaurant next door. The neighborhood is starting to get anxious about what’s taking so long! Any info you have is appreciated.”

From the owners – there was a bit of a delay due to circumstances beyond there control but there is some good news:

“Our new architects are HapstakDemetriou whose recent work includes Rose’s Luxury, Fiola Mare, Convivial, a couple Mussel Bars and many others. We couldn’t be more excited about the project.”

Updates when “permits are in hand”.

Despite the delay, the good news is it’s still coming and it’s gonna look awesome!!

Ed. Note: There was also a delay in Slash Run opening and that turned out great so I have a lot of confidence that this will be worth the wait. Besides Slash Run, Little Coco’s is from the same owners as El Chucho and Bar Charley, etc.

  • Is the comment from the owners in response to the OP’s question today, or is it from a recent post that was run a few weeks ago?

    Jackie, if you’re reading this: you will knock it out of the park here; all us neighbors are really excited about the concept!

    • +1. The neighborhood has been waiting and waiting and waiting for Coco’s to open. Lots of great hole in the wall places to eat (I’m not counting Aerdale) on this corridor, but nothing like this. With all the condos (7?) popping up within a few blocks, the density here has increased dramatically. Residents are begging for more high quality food options.

  • rib pit had some slammin’ ribs tho. I remember my first trip there in winter of 2008…

  • DCRA is hostile towards investors.

  • SOOO excited for this. We need good Italian in this neck of the woods. Anyone happen to know if Coco’s is going to have a patio where I can bring my pup in the summer?

  • YES! I’ve been asking for updates on this forever –thanks for doing this, POPville1
