Just to the left of 39 Rue de Jean, down a narrow alley lined with ivy covered brick, look for the bright neon sign beckoning diners into this friendly, boisterous seafood venue. Inside, a towering ceiling caps this historic warehouse bustling with diners. An open kitchen flanks the lively bar area as classic rock tunes and rustic décor (we dig the red blowfish lamps) contribute to the “island lounge” vibe. It’s only natural to indulge in one of Coast’s signature mojitos, but I can personally vouch for the peach julep — not too sweet, and generous on the bourbon. Folks rave about the lobster ceviche, crispy fried whole flounder, parmesan mashed potatoes, daily catch grilled over oak and hickory flames, and paella served piping hot in a cast iron skillet. It’s definitely on the pricey side, so brace your checkbook, but you can also fill up on cocktails and apps at a lower price point, and enjoy $4 taco specials on Sunday nights, with live music to boot. Weather permitting, grab an open table along the alley and imagine you’re in a coastal European town, that is, until your heaping plate of shrimp and stoneground grits plants you squarely in the Lowcountry. —Allston McCrady Dish (Summer 2015)
