The Kokomo meal that bowled us over.

A new year means a new opportunity to lie to yourself about all the good habits you’re definitely going to start. But new plant-based eatery Kokomo offers better incentive to actually follow through than the changing of a calendar page ever could. The Tropicana-cool Chinatown room serves up nutritionally dense vegan fare—like this Coastal Macro bowl, which layers roasted squash, ginger-pickled cabbage, edamame hummus and marinated tempeh onto brown rice and smothers the whole thing with punchy Thai ginger dressing. (Of course, if you decide to indulge in a bowl of frozen cocowhip after you’ve eaten your veggies, we won’t judge.)
