Can you teach an old Dog new Tricks; I don’t know most likely. Dogs are smarter than most the people I interact with on a daily biases. What I do know is that the re-branding of Circles café into Gulf Coast Bay Ridge (310 Bay Ridge Avenue) was a brilliant idea. The neighborhood was missing: Jamaican accent: some Island Flavor Mon. Is it real Island flavor? No, it’s flavored towards the neighborhood. If you want some hardcore ass jerked shit then take your ass to Myrtle Avenue. There you will find some good ox tail, jerked chicken, half the items sold out and your asshole on fire. Gulf Coast is targeting the neighborhood it is in Bay Ridge. I am not Knocking the food just laying it all out. The Food was good.
Gulf Coast Bay Ridge’ Cajun Calamari this is the shit you have to try it. The combination of sauces and Cajun spices blend perfectly. The dish comes out to be externally well balances and the texture is great. Its not greasy or rubbery. What more can you ask for? Besides another drink…..
Of course I ordered a zombie. Did you expect me to be on the wagon? Seriously have you read any of my other posts?
Gulf Coast Coconut shrimp was good. Honestly its a little hard to live up to the expectation that the calamari created. They were good and I would order them again and most likely every time.
My entree was Drunken Crawfish Pasta very flavorful and had some kick to it. This isn’t your grandmothers pasta It has heat. IF you don’t like heat don’t get it! (I am measuring a white people spice scale.)
Last but not least was the warm apple pie with ice cream on the side. Its apple pie with ice cream how the fuck can this be bad in any way? Like seriously I have never had a apple pie that I didn’t like!
Gulf Coast Bay Ridge should definitely be on your list of restaurants to try. The food is good, the drinks strong and it not your everyday Bay Ridge food. You can have burgers, wings, beer and pizza only so often before you get feed up with them. ‘
