Dining Guide


A tiny neighborhood restaurant for hip urban dwellers, Coast has colonized Mulberry’s former digs, lightening up the space with blue watercolors of waves painted on its tall white walls. The succinct menu emphasizes seafood, but there’s also a New York strip with smashed fingerling potatoes to satisfy Dad types. If you have an early movie at Violet Crown, you can speed-eat before the place fills up (the kitchen can be quite efficient). Or go later and relax with a caipirinha and plate of fat whole prawns. Reminiscent of New Orleans–style barbecued shrimp, they were a total mess to peel, but they were buttery and spicy atop a novel jalapeño-tinged corn puree. Smoked-corn coleslaw, in a tart vinaigrette, made a terrific side.
