The Bicycle Thief – Halifax, NS

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
