Re: “Best Fish & Chips

I am aghast that anyone could consider John's Lunch in any way, a good spot for fish and chips. There's at least a dozen places in HRM that are FAR better.

Re: “Sidewalk conditions remain icy, dangerous and unacceptable

Just drove from ‪‎Fredericton‬ to ‪Halifax‬ today, and the highway conditions in Nova Scotia are embarrassingly bad in comparison.
It was an obvious switch, as soon as we crossed the border into ‪Nova Scotia‬, there were ice ruts, uncleared passing lanes and dangerous road conditions.
‎New Brunswick‬ was perfect. 100% clear dry roads.
There was about 20-30cm of snow in NB yesterday, but you'd never know it on the highways.

This isn't a snow vs rain/freezing issue either. 1km into the NB side was perfect. 1km on the NS side was a mess. This is a laziness and failure to mandate service quality in the same way. So there it is. This isn't just a Halifax issue, it appears the province also has the same issues. But everyone involved should be embarrassed and held accountable.

Re: “Cut the crap about “young professionals,” and start getting real about opportunity

To all who are saying things were the same when "they" were young, keep in mind that the purchasing power of the dollar is substantially less than it was "then". The dollar's purchasing power, in real-world terms, has dropped by 85% since 1971: (source) http://canadanewslibre.files.wordpress.com…
So when you were easily paying off those student loans, and saving up for a house while working a couple of low-wage jobs, remember that every dollar you earned went much further than it does now.

Re: “Tomavino's is closed

I keep hoping that folks in this city (and by folks, I mean the general public, not just us smart Coast readers) will better embrace the local restaurants instead of the chains.
The food quality is better, the prices comparable and the service of a higher standard.
This isn't the first amazing local restaurant to close due to lack of business, and it won't be the last, but it's up to all of us to do our part and support the little guy, and not just when there's a Groupon deal for them.

Re: “Hungry Chili to close

Halifax won't be the same without it. This is and will always be the best place in the city for genuine and delicious Szechuan food. The notice in their front window tell a much more interesting story than just "reduced sales".

Re: “Best Chinese Restaurant

How does Hungry Chili keep losing this category every year?

Re: “Best Burger

Hopefully enough people will make it out to CheeChee's in the BLIP and try out the Big Earl burger. That thing is supreme.
