Jeanylle Steward brings a taste of Puerto Rico to Kansas City with Coco’s Café KC, her new Westside restaurant. Ahead of her opening in late April, Steward served her family-inspired fare at lively pop-ups around town, complete with salsa dancing. That sense of fun and community is carried over to the restaurant, which offers $2 snacks and live music on Fridays. Open for lunch weekdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Coco’s Cafe (2314 Summit St.) also offers flavorful dishes like stewed chicken and beef with veggies and steamed potatoes, marinated deep-fried pork, and yucca and green-plantain croquettes stuffed with ground-beef hash and fried to perfection. For dessert, diners can savor dulce du leche cake and flan, among other treats.
