OKO Restaurant Expands to Rye

Sticky ribs from OKO Restaurant

Westport residents have enjoyed OKO, Chef Brian Lewis’ Japanese-influenced restaurant, for more than a year. Now it’s Westchester’s turn to see what the fuss is about: the James Beard-nominated chef is opening OKO at 29 Purchase St. in Rye, NY, this summer.

The restaurant will feature Lewis’ take on traditional Japanese cuisine and Nigiri sushi, seasonal salads and vegetable dishes, homemade tofu and more. The restaurant represents a homecoming of sorts for Lewis: “Westchester has a special place in my heart, having grown up in Somers, NY, and fallen in love with cooking during my early restaurant experiences working in high school,” he says.
