Koko Palace, one of the oldest Japanese restaurants in South Florida, is about to close.
The restaurant is owned by the Koi Suru family, a Japanese-American group whose members include two of Koko’s sisters.
The owners of the restaurant are trying to save the place by renting space in a condominium project at the University of South Florida.
The condo is slated to open in 2018.
The Koi’s new restaurant will serve sushi, but only from their home kitchen.
