Coast restaurant provides all the little details you would expect from luxury dining venue. But here are the five main things to know before heading to the Rhode Island restaurant for dinner.
1. The menu changes. The menu at Coast is always changing to reflect, well, the season. The farm-to-table inspired cuisine features items from the New England region and includes the finds of the restaurant’s full-time forager who gathers the best ingredients from local farms, markets, fields, and waters. Chef de cuisine Jennifer Backman then turns them into a delicious mix of dishes for that night’s menu.
2. Location is everything. Coast takes full advantage of its location on the picturesque coast of Rhode Island — there is practically an ocean view from every seat in the dining room. You can take in the sunset on long summer days or watch the sun glisten off the water while having lunch or breakfast there.
3. Try a Farm and Vine dinner. Going along with its oh-so-seasonal personality, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant hosts guest chefs for monthly Farm and Vine dinners, which celebrate the best of New England cuisine. Each month a top culinary mind from the region will prepare a four-course meal made with local, seasonal ingredients. The “Vine” part comes in when a guest sommelier pairs each course with just the right wine to enhance the meal.
4. Desserts are divine. We suggest you save room for dessert. Pastry Chef Adam Young creates an array of sweets that feature single-origin chocolate, seasonal produce, and pastries all assembled in interesting and unique ways.
5. There’s a dress code. When going to Coast in the evening, there is a dress code that doesn’t allow jeans or shorts. Use it as an excuse to don that new dress or pull out the cufflinks — they will only add to an already delightful evening.
