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."

This weekend, Mark took home first place in the RightSomeGood Cook-off. To say the least, we were very proud of our chef as he handled himself like a pro under some serious pressure. This win had sparked a bit of renewed interest from local food writer Bill Spurr (The BOURGEOIS GOURMET as he is known to Herald readers) of the Chronicle Herald. After dining with us this past week he published a review in the Thursday edition of the paper that we are absolutely thrilled with! Above is a link to the article in full and after reading it we hope you'll come out to see what's new on our daily-changing menu here at The Brooklyn Warehouse. Many thanks, Bill!
Mark Takes Home First Place in Right Some Good Cook-Off!
This weekend, the RightSomeGood Food Festival made it's debut in Halifax. The Festival capped off with an all-day street food fair that closed down Spring Garden Rd. The fair had product stands for local suppliers, a full day of cooking competitions and of course, a full-on street food tent featuring items from both local and international chefs. One of these chefs was our very own, Mark Gray. Mark had chosen to be paired with Micheal Reidt of Miami, FL. Together for the food fair they created a Pork belly hash with leek ash, poached egg, hollandaise, smoked shrimp. Breakfast in hand!
He also competed in the live stage cook-off against chefs from all over HRM. A total of 11 chefs including Mark had to create a dish using the "black box ingredients" which were red perch, haskap berry juice, asparagus, and Benjamin Bridge's Tidal Bay white wine. They each had 45 mins to create 4 plates. Mark plated olive oil poached redfish, leek soubise, crispy quinoa, haskap pickled asparagus, caramelized shallot with a haskap-honey reduction.
At the end of the day the judges decided Mark's dish was the stand out and gave him the top prize of a 500$ gift certificate to Pete's Froutique! Bonus! A huge CONGRATULATIONS goes out to our guy Mark! And also a big cheers to all who competed and helped to put on a very cool event for our city.
This is a reminder to all you beautiful citizens out there that The Brooklyn Warehouse will be CLOSED for Canada Day July 1st. We will reopen for regular service on Wedensday, June 2nd.
