Restaurant Review: Coast

By 4:10 PM ,

The Wife and I stopped by Coast last night for dinner. We both left wondering how we had not heard of this place sooner, apparently it's been around for a while.

Coast is a very small restaurant with maybe 4 booths and a handful of tables, and a bar. The atmosphere is dark and cozy. We arrived about 8:00, it was half full and we were seated immediately.

We started with the mussels for an appetizer. The were great. There were a ton of them, and they were cooked perfectly. The tomato broth/sauce that they came in was rich and smoky.

The Wife and I decided to each get something different and share. I got the lamb chops and she got one of the specials - Chilean sea bass.

The lamb chops were rare-medium rare. They came five to a plate over mashed potatoes and broccolini. The chops were outstanding. The sides were great as well. One of the things we both remarked about was how the sides weren't over seasoned. One of the pitfalls of eating out is how salty a lot of sides turn out to be. Not the case here. Everything tasted fresh.
The Wife's sea bass was equally as good. Hers came over rice and had a blood orange reduction on the plate. The fish was firm, but flaky and had a great flavor.
We would both return here in a heartbeat.

  1. Good to know that you had a good time. It's on my list. This is the same guy that had to close Enoteca Sogno late last year. Did you get a chance to look at the wine list?

  2. We did, we actually ordered an Albarino that was really good. It was one of their "by the glass" selections.

    The wine list is about $8 for the by the glass wines, and in the $30's for a bottle, if I recall correctly.

    They had three white and three red available by the glass, as well as a couple of bottles of sparkling.

  4. It's at the corner of Libby and Grove, on Grove Ave, west of the intersection. Prices were a little steep - entrees starting in the 20's, but the portions were good sized.

    Our total bill was right at $100 for appetizer, a bottle of wine and two entrees.
