My server was supremely flirtatious and possessed — when it came to white wine — a lethal tendency to pour. And pour some more.
Lavished with complimentary oysters and enamored by the free wifi (Are you reading, restaurants in America? Are you reading?), I had already checked in on Foursquare, Tweeted my lunch location, perused my Facebook fan page and read all of Coast’s Yelp reviews. I was so done with social media for the hour.
And then my starter arrived. With much drama. A welcome distraction from the World Wide Web. And there was smoke. (But no fire.) And while in hindsight, I am slapping myself in the head for not holding my iPhone horizontally, I am still pleased enough that I was quick enough to think “Video! Video! Youtube! Youtube!” and capture this small little moment of Vancouver.
Coast is located at 1054 Alberini Street in Vancouver. That’s in Canada. I would highly recommend a visit, both to the restaurant and the country.
