I love birthdays. I enjoy buying presents for people and wrapping them up into beautiful parcels to present to them on their special day. I (obviously) also relish the dining aspect of birthdays; whether it’s a simple cake or an elaborate five-course meal, I love the celebration that’s involved and making the Bday boy/girl feel […]
One of my favourite restos in Halifax at the moment is Pipa on Argyle St. Actually, since Pipa opened in 2008, it’s been a favourite. It’s a husband-and-wife-run resto that specializes in Brazilian and Portuguese food. One of the things that I find appealing about this spot is the fact that most of the dishes […]
A couple weeks ago in late June, I filmed a commercial for Nova Scotia Tourism as part of the ‘My Nova Scotia’ campaign. On June 17th, I stood on the corner of Argyle Street across from Durty Nelly’s, in the same position for three hours…on two-foot-high apple crates. Yup, that’s 180 minutes without moving my […]
Earlier this spring, I did some work for an organization writing about various restaurants and food festivals in Halifax. In exchange, I ended up with a gift certificate to CUT Steakhouse (my choice) for a staggering sum. Yeah, that’s right… 300 bucks!
Last weekend, I was invited to partake in a mystery meal…actually, let me start from the beginning. About a month ago, I received a save-the-date type email from a contact of mine at By the Glass. That’s it, just a date. When June 26th came around, I was filled with anticipation as to what the […]
What began as an innocent trip to grab some brunch suddenly became a day of excess. While a friend and I decided to go to brunch and visit another friend and server at Ristorante aMano, we arrived just as said server was finishing her shift. Instead of dining without her, we decided to wait around […]
A friend of mine was in town a little while ago and we managed to consume quite a bit of food! We went to Trader’s Bar for their $5 unlimited mussel deal, Ryan Duffy’s for an incredible steak dinner, and ended the weekend at Morris East.
I always find it interesting when a new restaurant opens here in Halifax. With the endless construction that went on on Argyle within the last year or so, we have seen several restaurants come and go, and much menu changing, aesthetic changing, etc. When I saw that the location that previously housed the Wooden Monkey […]
I always LOVE finding new spots to do breakfast on a weekday. I often work with the Delta Halifax staff in my position as an event planner, but I had never made it to the Crown Bistrot. That all changed last week when I met my contact for breakfast. I’m so used to reserving a […]
