Years ago Kokos was located in the heart of downtown Green Bay, and it was a staple of the community. I took my wife on numerous dates there and it was always a quality meal, in a lovely.

Talk about a new concept for a restaurant in the greater Green Bay area.... Located right next to one of my favorite spots, Station 1 Brewing, is The Kitchen Table. Tricia and Lauren (Tricia's daughter) opened this in Fall 2023 to bring a new style of dining to the Vickery Village along with Chives and Spork. The full story behind why they decided to open this restaurant and bit about these two amazing ladies can be found here.
But what I am about to tell you is basically why I love this place, and it starts with the chef & owner, Tricia!! She is an amazing woman, who has one of the kindest hearts I know, and is always there for those around her, treating them like a member of her family. And that's part of the inspiration behind The Kitchen Table, to have a restaurant where you can share a good & quality meal with people, along with great conversation, as if you were family at a big kitchen table.
On top of having an amazing woman, and her daughter, running the show is the amazing food they have crafted. I had known prior to the restaurant that Tricia is an amazing chef, and now so many more people have the opportunity to try out her culinary skills and get to know her a bit more as she cooks right there with you in the restaurant. The concept behind the restaurant is serving everything either in a bowl or on a bun, because I mean come on what better way to eat a meal!!!
They believe in it so much that this beautiful print stating, "Buns, Bowls, Good Times is ready to greet you immediatly upon entry to let you know that you are in for a treat. And I mean come on, who wouldn't want to enjoy a date night with their spouse in this cozy establishment, or meet friends and share a conversation at the large table in the middle of the room?!?!?!
Now, regarding the food, this is probably one of the premier places in all of Northeast WI where you are going to get quality ingredients, cooked as if you were at home, so you can rest assured you are getting a healthy & delicious meal. The Pizza Bowl is honestly an amazing work of art to watch get made upside down, then flipped and boom you have a pizza in a bowl. Or how about the Oh My Thai or Curry Bowls, both jam packed with flavor and will make you want to come back for a second bowl. And in regards to the "buns" category, well I'm somewhat proud but also a bit ashamed to admit that my first night trying one, I ordered another, and within a week I was back to try the third. I honestly don't know which is my favorite between the Big Fig, Italian, or the Greek, so I'll tell you my wife's favorite (and she's never wrong) is the Big Fig. Oh and I did say that everything is a quality and healthy meal, and this is shown because Tricia uses sweet potatoes as sides for the buns, instead of russet potatoes, fries, or something else that is not nearly as good for you. But she does spoil you a bit if you get the Sweets, because her main dessert is a warm baked chocolate chip cookie, with marshmallow fluff on top. Um yes, you need to get one of these, along with a fork to eat it because it's melty and amazing.
So next time you find yourself wondering where to go for a dinner, consider checking out The Kitchen Table in Suamico in the Vickery Village. You will not be disappointed, I promise you!!! And hey why not pair your dinner with a great beverage from Station 1 Brewing because as you'll learn, they are right next door, and you can order from The Kitchen Table while drinking a delicious pint brewed by Pete next door. I have personally done this more times than I care to publicly admit, instead I'd rather swap stories over a Blue Nacho Bowl and a pint of an Amber Alarm, while listening to some live music put on regularly at Station 1 Brewing.
