The place is Halifax. An area once known mostly for its seafood is now making a reputation for that and alot more.
There are new foods, and new ways of presenting not so new foods. As importantly, the area is distinguishing itself for what is described as “a small-town sensibility, the sense of friendship and community that’s embedded in the East Coast”.
It’s a local camaraderie that’s helped the Halifax food scene the most. There’s been much sourcing locally because food can be procured more cheapely. But it’s also about helping to bolster the local economy and strengthening Halifax’s culinary identity.
