The restaurant, which opened in April 2018, showcases Chef Brian Lewis’ innovative take on traditional Japanese cuisine and sushi, in a lively and charming atmosphere.
Lunch will be available Wednesday – Friday from 11:30am-2:30pm and will feature a daily lunch-specific menu for this new service. Options will include Hand Rolls, Bento Boxes, Nigiri Sushi meals featuring 5x pieces of Nigiri Sushi along with miso soup and a salad option, Sashimi meals featuring Chirashi Sushi, Sashimi Moriawase or Spicy Tuna Sashimi OKOpoke along with miso soup and a salad option, as well as favorites from the dinner menu such as gluten-free vegetable tempura, OKOnomiyaki, Pastramen, King Crab Gyoza, Edamame and multiple salad options.

The full beverage program, featuring hot and iced teas, Sake, Wine, Beer and cocktails, will also be available.
“I am delighted to open our doors for lunch service, inviting the greater Westport community in to enjoy our creative cuisine during the week,” said Lewis. “Since we opened six months ago in the heart of this vibrant town, it’s struck me how many people are out and about in the afternoon seeking a delicious, high-quality, fun option for lunch, including those looking to dine with their young children. My team and I have worked hard and had a lot of fun developing a lunch menu that will be delicious, healthy and designed to meet the busy schedule of our weekday lunch diner. We are looking forward to welcoming all of our regulars, and of course, some new faces from town.
In addition to lunch service, OKO will launch a to-go option, offering online ordering of its full lunch or dinner menu directly through its website – www.okokitchen.com – with curbside pick-up.
