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… Read More

McKelvies Restaurant – Halifax, NS

I worked in a hotel a few years back while still finishing up University. After a short time there, I noticed that every time an out-of-towner asked for a restaurant suggestion, they would get one of two answer: Five Fisherman or McKelvies.

Hamachi House Sushi
On Friday night, we gathered with a group of friends for one of our favorite kinds of food entertainment - Teppanyaki. While Teppanyaki is certainly not something unique to Halifax, it is one of our favorite things to do on vacation, and a great way for locals and tourists alike to guarantee a good night… Read More

Rudders Brew Pub – Yarmouth, NS

Rudders Brew Pub Yarmouth
This weekend, we traveled to Yarmouth to take in the local antique and art shops and sample some local fare and craft beer. Enter Rudders. Rudders is a popular Yarmouth Restaurant with an overwhelming selection of seafood dishes.  Several years ago, we had the swordfish, and have been wanting seconds ever since. Unfortunately, it was… Read More
