Newfoundland: Real Food Rockstars

So, Unless you've been living on Mars you've likely heard of Raymond's. A restaurant nestled on the east coast in St. John's, Newfoundland. Over the last few years it has solidified itself as easily one of the top restaurants in Canada. After a visit from the WNetwork show "Million Dollar Critic" the host, Giles Coren says it should rank as one of the best in the world. In fact, to quote the eloquent host, "I've eaten at Noma, and I prefer Raymond's",    ".....which is not just the best restaurant in St. John's but is probably one of the best restaurants in the world." 

Below is a link to the HuffPost article featuring the review and of course a little video to along with it. Just so we're clear as well, this is a big deal. Having one of the top spots in the world be right here on the east coast and huge success for all thing Newfoundland. Huge congrats to Chef Jeremy Charles and the whole crew at Raymond's! Keep doing what you do!

Mark Takes Silver at Gold Medal Plates!

Last night, hundreds of people descended on the Cunard Centre for this year's Gold Medal Plates Chef Competition. It was truly a marvel of culinary delight as some of Nova Scotia's top chefs put together their best offerings. Our main man, Mark Gray went with NS lamb done in a fenugreek and maple braised roulade with kohlrabi puree, toasted quinoa, fermented chard stems, arugula gel, and maple lamb jus. After hundreds of plates by all the chefs, the judges decided Mark's was worthy of the Silver Medal! A big Congratulations goes out to Renée Lavellée (@feistychef) for her Gold Medal win and to Jason Lynch of Le Caveau restaurant on the bronze! The whole team at Brooklyn Warehouse is incredibly proud of our guy for putting together a great dish and team. Way to go, Mark!

Check out Mark below on the Global Morning News talking about the event!

Our Chalkboards Turn One Year Old!!

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!

Mark Takes the Win for "Battle of the Chefs"

     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!
