It was a dark and stormy night..... Actually I can;t quite recall what the weather was like that day but it was indeed a night. A night in October one year ago today that our small bistro printed our last paper menu and began the shift to changing our menu on a daily basis to reflect the real-time offerings that our great province and beyond has to offer. As a business you have faith in your customers that they are invested in what it is that you do and this past year has been a true example of exactly that. A community embracing the culinary passions of a group of food-crazy guys and gals. Below is a video that our good friend Doug Townsend put together last year that went along with the launch of our new menu program. What a crazy year! Here's to may more!
So, it's been about 6 months since we took over the kitchen at Bearly's House of Blues in Downtown Halifax and launched our second Ace Burger Co. location and the response has been fantastic! It was always our intention to make full use of the great kitchen space at Bearly's by having a more in-depth diner style service and TODAY, OCTOBER 1ST marks the day when that becomes reality! We're launching a treasure trove of new menu items at our Bearly's location to give you even more ways to put #aceinyourface! Take a look below to see the glory that is the new menu along with our classic staples. Oh yes.... and the return of RIBS!
This year's City Harvest event is shaping up to be one of the best. With more businesses involved than ever before it has something to offer for everyone.

Be sure to swing by and grab a burger while you're out enjoying all the great thing Halifax has to offer during this year's City Harvest!

On a Tuesday night in September; last night to be exact. Our main man, Chef Mark Gray went out to compete in a chef's cook-off to celebrate the grand opening of the Hilton Inn in Halifax. He was up against Culinary Team Canada Chef Peter Dewar. Using a "black box" secret ingredient style format here's what Mark had to say about his dish, " Using scallops, blue cheese, haskap jam, beet greens and quinoa, I made a play on scallops au gratin with blue cheese mornay, seared scallops, beet green and apple salad with haskap vinaigrette with 45 mins of time" and after all the judging was complete our man came out on top as the winner! As a cool bonus to the evening, the event was hosted by two-time olympic gold medalist Catriona Le May Doan! Gold like crazy!

Voted Halifax’s best restaurant by the readers ofThe Coast for four consecutive years,Brooklyn Warehouse’s consistently delicious food and warm ambience keep both tourists and locals returning again and again. The restaurant has a strong commitment to locally-sourced products and fresh ingredients, with a vegetable garden found on-site and rotating daily specials displayed on a chalkboard menu. The region’s breweries and wineries are well-represented on the restaurant’s extensive beer and wine menu. The interior looks like a cross between a bistro and a pub, with tin ceiling tiles and hand-painted signs, along with an airy three-season patio."
