What People Are Saying About Our Brunch Venues in NYC
“From start to finish Cocoon was amazing. He made sure that I was completely happy with everything. The place itself is very beautiful and required very minimum decorating due to all beautiful plants, lights, and decor that was already there. The staff at Cocoon helped me out with setting up the place and did not leave until I had everything in order. He is the best!! All my guests loved the place and I would most certainly book this venue again. Thank you Cocoon!”
