The Bicycle Thief – Halifax, NS

Eat, Drink, & Do
The Bicycle Thief Halifax

Since hearing about the theft of a bicycle from Halifax’s latest high-end restaurant, The Bicycle Thief, we have had our hearts, and stomachs, set on trying the fare (proving that publicity stunts and/or tongue-in-cheek larceny are good for something).  Apparently, we weren’t the only ones, since the waiting list to get into the new Bishop’s Landing restaurant rivals only the line-ups at the passport office.

After calling mid-week to get a table for the weekend, they were able to squeeze us in on a Monday (literally, as the place was packed).  We were clever enough to order a bottle of Spy Valley as we debated over the extensive menu.  Our waiter, Mike, was very knowledgeable, strongly recommending the best arugula salad we’ve ever had, along with the mussels and short ribs.

The other members of our party rounded out our orders with shrimp-stuffed chicken, lobster and salmon.  We were all so pleased, that our curiosity over the dessert trumped our full bellies.  Our meal was book-ended with the best creme brulé we’ve ever had as the lights were dimmed in this very cozy waterfront establishment.

Our top picks were the arugula salad, chicken stuffed with shrimp, creme brulé. The short ribs had room for improvement (a little lacking in the flavour department but very tender), and we would have loved to see more gluten-free options

Welcome fellow adventurers, explorers, foodies, knaves and those of questionable repute to The Local Traveler. This blog is dedicated to discovering the best parts of travel – craft beer, local wine, adventure, unique cuisine, and hidden gems. In December 2010, we were inspired to start this blog for two reasons. First of all, after listening to a radio story about the top environmental offenders in travel, we decided to find ways to reduce our personal carbon footprint. Secondly, we found ourselves in a position where we were flat broke but still had a huge desire to travel and explore So, we began investigating all the attractions accessible by car, bike, foot, and train. We learned to find adventure every day – at home, close to home, and much further afoot. We believe that travel is less about the destination and more about the journey. You don’t have to go far to find an adventure, sometimes the best experiences can be found right in your backyard.
