Sushi, Bowls, and Salads, Oh My!
Coco & Moss: The Asian-Flare Eatery trending in Downtown Savannah
Attracting locals, tourists, instagrammers, and health food enthusiasts, Coco & Moss is what’s trending with the food scene in downtown Savannah. Located just south of Ellis Square, this chic eatery sits on the corner of Congress and Barnard streets and certainly livens up the streetscape.
This boutique restaurant offers healthy gourmet food and drink options in a bright, sleek setting. It’s the latest endeavor for Ele and the Chef. This well known power team is a local restaurant group who also runs, Little Duck Diner, The Vault, Flying Monk Noodle Bar, and Shuga Bar. Coco & Moss is perfect for a light, but filling, lunch or dinner. The modern, welcoming bar also invites guests to stop by for a refreshing, after work cocktail or to try their selection of sake, beer, and wine.
Their asian-flared menu is rather reasonably priced, and offers sushi, bowls, salads, and paninis. Edamame is a must. The bowls are a delicious mixture of protein, veggies, rice, and other ingredients all beautifully seasoned. They offer a wide variety of sushi options that are mouthwatering good.
Our founder and CEO, Cora Bett Thomas, is nothing short of a Coco & Moss regular. She goes by the name of “shiso salmon lady,” because she orders the exact same item off the menu every time so goes. If you guessed that Cora Bett’s favorite dish is the shiso salmon bowl, then… you’re right!
The dishes are what millenials would call, “instagrammable.” Snap a photo of your meal on white marble tables, with pretty natural light, and you’re sure to share with your friends. They’re colorful, and equally delicious.
So where does the name of the restaurant come from? According to their website, “coco” represents the tropical paradise that raised the owners, and “moss” imbues the atmosphere within which it is set, nestled into Savannah’s historically laced squares. It’s the perfect “people-watching” spot! Grab a table on the sidewalk or in any of the windows, and you’ll surely soak in the hustle and bustle of Savannah while enjoying a delightful meal.
