Coast Global Seafood Open For Biz

And, we’re back. Happy 2009 to everyone. This email popped up in my inbox sometime last week, when I was shoving all kinds of food into my mouth (hello, old friend pizza!) and drinking everything within reach that contains alcohol. Anyway, lots of restaurants have closed, so it’s good to hear about one that’s open. Coast Global Seafood in the Shops at Legacy has been open for about a month (Nancy told us about the restaurant here last September), and they would like you to come eat dinner there. The interior was designed by Paul Draper (Central 214 and Seventeen Seventeen restaurants), and apparently there are “chandeliers made out of fishing lures” and “jellyfish-shaped hanging lights.” This sounds a bit fishy, but we imagine it’s well done if Draper’s behind it.

The menu is after the jump, but obviously, the focus is on fresh seafood. The chef is one Joshua Perkins, who used to cook at The Globe in Atlanta and at Le Bernardin in NYC (not Sascia Marchesi, as you may have read elsewhere). I just spoke to catering sales manager Krissy White, who said business has been quite busy for the past couple of weeks, especially due to the warm weather over the weekend. “We’ve got a beautiful patio with a great view of the fountain, if the weather would just cooperate,” she says. (Give it a few more months, or another global warming episode, we say). They’ve got happy hour from 4-7 each day, and possible plans for a big grand opening party in the works.
