Located in Historic Properties, Hart & Thistle Gastropub and Brewery features great food prepared fresh daily. The term ‘gastropub’ traditionally means a public house, aka a pub, which specializes in high-quality food. The relaxed and comfortable atmosphere lends itself well to the surroundings, architecture, and style of food – “Come for the beer….stay for the service…come back for the food!”
In the warmer weather, you can enjoy the 200-seat waterfront patio – the largest in HRM. During the cooler months, the fireplace inside adds to the ambiance, where you can enjoy a nice night out with friends and family.

Chef Collin Stone and Chef Sean Kettley have created a menu that offers a Nova Scotian twist and uses local products wherever possible. Give the Steamed Local Scotian Blue Mussels a try! How about a hand thrown pizza or one of our unique pastas?? For the ‘Harty’ appetite, nothing beats a great tasting classic like Maritime Seafood n’ Chips. Served with hand cut sea-salted PEI Russets and house made tartar sauce, it’s sure to appeal to everyone. Don’t miss Chef Stone’s Jamaican Classic Curried Chicken, it’s an old family recipe! With a variety of beers on tap, and several wines by the glass, we’re sure you can find something to wash it all down!

I am a proud Nova Scotian, but I have an unabashed love for Europe. Luckily for me, I can fill the gaps between my European adventures with a slice of Europe at Brussels on Granville Street in downtown Halifax.
I spent some time with chef Kristy Burgess and manager Matt Bent before my meal. We had a lovely time discussing the café-brasserie culture of northern Europe and how it influenced the menu and atmosphere at Brussels**.
Described as “accessible European-style cuisine with local fare,” Brussels offers a combination of traditional Belgian dishes and widely-known European staples. I’ll go one step further and say Brussels is the closest thing to Europe in Halifax without a trip to YHZ. more…

The temperate weather and overwhelming politeness of today mask the deliciously seedy history of Nova Scotia’s capital city. These days, Halifax is just literally delicious thanks to Rum Runners Rum Cake Factory.
When I think about prohibition, I think tinkling jazz piano, gangsters and tommy guns, Dorothy Parker at The Algonquin and the high-stakes world of illegal liquor production, distribution, and consumption. Prohibition was also a pretty exciting time in Canada and the United States. In Nova Scotia, entrepreneurs with boats were among the most notable beneficiaries – through rum running. more…
