"Where should we go for fresh seafood?" is one of the most frequent questions we're asked, and it's a challenging query if you're looking for a midscale experience somewhere between a catfish shack and a luxury destination such as Midtown's Oceanaire.

Goin' Coastal is a solid middleweight contender. The Virginia-Highland newcomer, the second location of a company started in Canton, opened summer 2010 to brisk business even on weekdays. The menu stays in line with the casual vibe: shrimp and grits, mussels steamed in white wine with garlic and herbs, a Lowcountry take on bouillabaisse. Chef and co-owner Zach Kell prides himself on sourcing sustainable seafood, and the selection changes daily.
