Blue Point Coastal Cuisine Restaurant Review: Set in the middle of the Gaslamp Quarter, this sleek restaurant is one of the many Cohn-family restaurants that packs 'em in all over town. Dark wood, high-backed booths and (perhaps) the extensive martini list try to lend a sense of intimacy to the usually overcrowded dining room. The menu offers a bit of everything for seafood lovers: fresh oysters, tuna sashimi, shrimp cocktails and osetra caviar. We like the grilled portobello mushroom with fresh mozzarella and saffron-scented yellow tomato coulis, and the grilled ahi with ginger-soy beurre blanc. The grilled pork chop, alas, falls flat: overcooked and far from tender. Desserts are fairly standard---crème brûlée, flourless chocolate cake, fruity sorbets---but done well.
