For the last week of Dine Out Vancouver, I chose this restaurant for us, because we had never been there, their regular menu is expensive for a try-out, and the Dine Out menu looked good, so I thought it would be a good opportunity to try them out with 3-course dinner for $38 at this event. Although I made a reservation before the event started, the dinner time was almost fully booked and I had to book for earlier time. However, Collin found out he had to work on that evening at the last minute, so we changed to 9:15pm.

Coast Restaurant is one of restaurants of Glowbal Collection group, such as Glowbal Grill or Italian Kitchen. Coast is located on Alberni street, where lots of restaurants and cafe are nearby. They serve seafood including oyster.

We both ordered the same appy. Collin loved it and asked me to take a picture of the scallop for some reason. :O Of course, I liked it, too.

He was upset with the pepper that was so hot that he couldn’t taste well after that. (The server didn’t warn anything, and also Collin didn’t read the menu well, as usual. 😛 I didn’t know how you say it in English until he complained, but I’m familiar with Shishito pepper, which I can barely eat, because I can’t take that kind heat well.)

My entree, Grilled B.C. Snapper, and Add-on Rosemary Scallops
(Vegetables a la Grecque, Citrus Beurre Blanc)

Surprisingly, snapper portion was huge! I expected the half size. Oh, no, I didn’t complain. 🙂

Dark Chocolate Turtle Cake
(Raspberry pop rocks Macaron, Salted Caramel Fudge, Pecan Praline)

There were no choices on dessert. I’m not a fan of Macaron, but this was fun to eat! Pop rocks candy was on it, which I used to buy when I was small. 🙂

I was happy with all my choices! We want to try their regular menu on a special occasion.

And, extra pictures for the restaurant interior.

As the first eat-out this year, Collin chose this restaurant to celebrate. I agreed, as we really liked their food at the last visit when his birthday. They have prix fixe brunch for $29 and change the menu occasionally, so you can enjoy a seasonal 3-course meal at a reasonable price. It would be great for first-time customers to try them out.

Market by Jean-Georges is on 3rd floor of Shangri-La Hotel, which is the highest building in BC and is located in the centre of downtown Vancouver. If you have a problem with stairs, find the elevator beside Urban Fare market.

We ordered from their prix fixe brunch menu.

When an expediter brought my dish, she said Sushi, and I told her that I didn’t order Sushi. She restated Sashimi after that. Come to think of it, why didn’t they say Sushi on the menu? 🙂

His entree, French Toast with Roasted Apples and Crispy Bacon

After Collin started eating his main, he realized that he had enough sweets and that the dessert was still coming, so he asked the server to pack the half. I warned him after we ordered, but it was too late. I should have done that before we ordered.

My entree, Nut and Seed Crusted Snapper, Sweet and Sour Broth

My dessert, Poached Pear, Chewy Caramel, Vanilla Sherbet

The caramel was hard because of ice cream? It could have been more enjoyable if caramel was on top of pear or on the side.

Compared to the last menu, this menu was OK. Don’t get me wrong, taste was good. I just liked the last menu more. In this menu, I liked my appy best.

Early in November, I asked Collin to go to this restaurant for brunch, because he told me he wanted to try, and also because it was his birthday. I heard they have prix fixe brunch for $29, which I thought was reasonable.

Market by Jean-Georges is on 3rd floor of Shangri-La Hotel, which is the highest building in BC and is located in the centre of downtown Vancouver.

As we told them it was his birthday, they gave both of us a complimentary Mimosa.

All tasted so good. They seem to change the menu occasionally based on the seasonal or available ingredients, so some of what we ate are no longer in their menu. I would like to go back for my birthday. 🙂
