Hungry fishermen are known to bend down by the waterside to let minnows, eager to escape life in a small pond, leap into their open mouths. Dine on a fish that made it to the big city with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of delectable seafood and more at Coast Global Seafood, located in Plano at the Shops at Legacy North. In compliance with Texas state law, this deal is not valid on alcohol.
Using fresh fish from all over the world, Chef Peter Harrison whips up seasonal menus for delicious dining. Take a gander at starters such as sesame-seared ahi tuna tataki with wasabi cream ($15), and popcorn crawfish ($10) drizzled with honey mustard and lemon-herb ranch. Finger shovels are put to work scooping up the grilled salmon BLT ($15) served with garlic parmesan fries, and maws can mow down on the jerk grilled mahimahi ($24), served with coconut-lime rice and pineapple‐black-bean salsa. For former merpeople sweet-talked into the landlubbing drudgery of office work with tantalizing offers of 401(k)s, ensnare non-seameat options such as roasted all‐natural chicken ($18) paired with toasted almond basmati rice, broccolini, and natural jus, or vegetarian mushroom risotto ($16) enhanced with seasonal vegetables, parmesan, and porcini broth.
Housed in an elegantly casual dining room, Coast Global boasts vivid oceanic décor such as stunning glass jellyfish lights and faux-coral sculptures, reminiscent of summer days spent playfully engaged in U-boat role-playing games under the sea. This villa of victuals also offers a lounge and outdoor patio, ideally tuned for catching the Bellagio-inspired fountain with a dancing water and light show.
The Dallas Observer gave Coast Global Seafood the Best Waitstaff award in 2009, and the restaurant was featured on NBC Dallas-Fort Worth's website and in D Magazine. Yelpers award it an average of three stars and Open Table reviewers give it an approximate four-star average:
- From the glass jellyfish lights to the faux coral sculpture created out of Birch tree wood at Coast’s entryway, this seafood restaurant doesn’t need a cloudy lobster tank to convince you its edible treasures from the sea are fresh. – Annie Potasznik, NBC Dallas-Forth Worth
- The striking setting would compensate for nearly any culinary shortcoming, but the food at Coast is as stellar as the restaurant in which it is served. – Nancy Nichols, D Magazine
