I am so totally smiling in this picture. Are you wondering why? Well, let me share these shots first...
High ceilings. Ships on the walls. Maps. Cool place! The mister requested a quiet dinner alone before heading to this concert. I agreed, on the condition that he choose the place and he did well with this one...
Those crazy, light-up signs are so hard to photograph with my iPhone! COAST. Now, the reason I was smiling was easy. We went to a scrumptious seafood restaurant and I was served the most beautiful plate of vegetarian food that I have ever been served since I started this veggie journey. It was so well thought-through. You know so many places simply offer the vegetables of the day or a veggie quesadilla or worse yet, a salad and an order of fries. Not COAST. This is what I enjoyed...
A portabello mushroom perfectly grilled and topped with quinoa and lentils, roasted red peppers and brussel sprouts, a slice of bruschetta topped with beets and some fried goat cheese. This dinner was amazing. Now, even funnier, the mister finally, after what felt like an hour of perusing the menu, settled on his usual steak, coleslaw and mashed potatoes.
We're goofy. A nice dinner out. An incredible seafood restaurant. And, neither one of us chose seafood for dinner. So, to remedy that, we ordered some Buffalo Fried Shrimp.
I have been occasionally eating some seafood and I will probably forever have dreams about these melt-in-your-mouth shrimp. Wonderful! The picture does not come close to telling you how delicious they really were! All of this made the Mister one very happy man!
Coast is easy to miss if you aren't looking for it. Go to John Street and locate 39 Rue de Jean and Coast is directly behind it. In fact, the two restaurants share the same owners!
We are now looking forward to those balmy summer nights when we can return to Coast and score a table outside in the alley and pretend that we are in Paris. Ahh, I can dream, right??
Hope you are gearing up for a great week-end! We have two of our kiddos and one girlfriend driving down tomorrow to celebrate the holiday so, Palm Sunday week-end just became Easter Sunday week-end. Bring on the bunnies!
Happy Thursday from Charleston Treasures and be sure to make a stop at Coast when you are in the mood for a great meal!
