Coco Hut Restaurant Review: Anyone who has visited a Caribbean island and dined in one of the countless semi-open-air huts will find that this place feels very familiar. Perhaps because of the similarities between New Orleans cooking and Jamaican preparations, Coco Hut’s food achieves authenticity. Customers give their orders directly to the cook over the service counter, and meals are presented in Styrofoam boxes. The tiny kitchen turns out jerk shrimp with a crisp, charred surface, and a variety of daily fish options. Jerk chicken is cooked slowly over a grill outdoors as it's done in Jamaica --- not easily replicated elsewhere. Coco Hut’s slightly addictive banana fritters go well with almost anything on the menu. The friendly vibe, the reggae on the radio and the smell of spice in the air fashion an appealing environment. Service is iffy and desserts are scarce. No alcohol is served.
