A night at the Coast

May 21, 2009

While in Charleston, S.C. for a wedding (everyone’s getting married lately…I know!) my boo took me out for a nice seafood dinner! We dined at one of my favorite places in the city, Coast. It’s a casual, beachy restaurant with fresh seafood and zippy mango mojitos. It’s the perfect place to go on a breezy low country evening in Charleston. My friend Ky joined us and we feasted on oysters, fried green tomatoes, fresh fish and fine wine (1/2 price bottle night! yay!).
First, we started with cornmeal crusted oysters topped with caviar and served with a light mango salsa on the side. The oysters were plump, juicy, briney and just about perfect!

Next, we had fried green tomatoes with a spicy remoulade drizzled on top. Delish!

Ky had the seared tuna with soba noodles in a pomegrantate soy reduction. The reduction was amazing-tangy, salty and sweet!

Nick had the snapper in a creamy sauce. It was OK, but mine was the best by far.

I had the wood grilled escolar served with veggies and creamy mashed potatoes (gotta love comfort food). Escolar is a white, flaky fish that taste like butter. It has a rich, creamy, buttery flavor that makes it taste rich though it’s a lighter fish. One of my favorites.

We paired the meal with a grassy, citrusy sauvignon blanc from New Zealand called Jibe. This wine was so exciting it made me want to get up and do a jig! If you can find it, try it.

Life at the Coast is good.
