There were surprisingly NO other diners at Japanese Restaurant Cocoro on date night last Saturday. But was it really a surprise? With the currently revamped, more modern and more comfortable Roe in Sovereign North, the popular East Japanese and scenic Majestic Sushi and Grill as competitors? The advantage was a private, more intimate environment. But what about first dates where persons may not be as comfortable together with conversation yet or groups that come for dinner? I’m sure they would like a bit more buzz around. The only obvious thing that has changed at Cocoro are a few new items on the menu. Good service and food quality have never been an issue, but surely the decor needs a change. The surroundings are just outdated and not even modern antique. Some kind of marketing also needs to be done with new offerings to make persons remember Cocoro exists.
