Get ready Halifax, it's gonna be "RightSomeGood"!

 


Even science is better with bacon!

We all know and love bacon. One of the great things about this wonder food is the smell when it hits the pan. As a kid, being able to smell breakfast cooking from the kitchen while you were still in bed or walking into your favourite diner and having it hit you like a sac of delicious bricks! For me, the smell is one of a kind and has a special place in my memory banks. Not until recently did I wonder "what exactly makes this smell so great?" Well as always, the internet comes to the rescue as someone out there with a fancy science degree and great animation skills has put together a little video that explains it all. So, time to pull back the curtain and expose the science of why bacon has that special something. 


Father's Day Prix-Fixe

Dear Halifax

When we learned about this year's "Best of Food" results we could't have been more humbled by the support this city has show us over the years. Last year when we decided to move forward with the daily-changing chalkboard menu we were very aware that this change was a big jump from our regular service but change is something we've always been about here at The Brooklyn Warehouse. In this industry you have to stay consistent but at the same time you have to give your customers an exciting experience and keep people interested in what's going on. From our crowdfunding-based renovation projects to the monthly menus all the way up to our daily-changing chalkboard menus it has been our goal to deliver a rock solid dining experience while keeping things fresh, new and engaging. Above is a video shot by Doug Townsend back in october that gives you some insight into the "whys" and "hows" behind our evolution! Again, WE LOVE YOU TOO HALIFAX! THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR NORTH END HEARTS!    

Wine and Spirits Gala Recap

          We had a blast at the Local Connections Halifax's Wine and Spirits Gala on Thursday night at the Halifax Club. In a room filled with some of the province's best craft brewers as well as The Stubborn Goat, we served up some poached swordfish "carppacio" with pickled knotweed and a winterberry vinaigrette. It was a fresh and spring focused little offering that impressed and went fast! So fast that we ran through 8 whole swordfish loins! The night was truly a who's who of the provinces best food and drink. With innovative collaborations going on between Ratinaud French Cuise and O'bladee Wine Bar and across the hall Dave Smart's Front and Central and Avondale Sky Winery the night was an all-encompassing trip around the province. Check out some of the shots from the event by clicking the link below!

Bluenose Marathon 26 "Myles" Menu

In honour of the annual Bluenose Marathon held in Halifax, a group of restaurants under the direction of Taste of Nova Scotia will be putting together special menus and unique items created to celebrate this great event and showcase great local ingredients at the same time. The idea is to have a health-concious menu that is sourced using local ingredients that are produced (if possible) within 26 miles of the restaurant. The Brooklyn Warehouse is proud to be a part of this culinary showcase and as such our chef, Mark Gray put together a menu that we will be "running" during the weekend of the great race. May 16th and 17th. Check it out!
