Re: “Puppeteer banned from waterfront

Perhaps Mr. Hatte has done other things to raise the ire of police and guards in Halifax- I don't know, but all I need to know is one thing: "GO BACK TO THE RESERVE"?!!! Why is this security guard still employed? Or at least not signed up in courses on how to know what is and is not appropriate to tell people in a job that requires constant interaction with the public. Wow.

Re: “Luis Clavel lands at Cafe 101

Just tried the food here last night, and was not in any way disappointed. I ordered the pork tenderloin served with delicious homemade cornbread, pulled pork shoulder in sasparilla root sauce, with a small side salad of fresh microgreens and sliced apples, fresh garden veggies (on this night it was baby asparagus and baby carrots), and homemade thinly sliced 'red' potato chips. It was AMAZING. The flavors worked incredibly well together... other dishes sounded really good too, I'm looking forward to a return visit soon. Prices are medium-range for the quality, service was very friendly and efficient. I hope locals drop in and discover this secret soon, because hotel restaurants aren't usually the places to go for delicious creative food...this one is!

Re: “CUT Steakhouse and Urban Grill

I agree with Sickboy; I've been to the Grill half a dozen times over the past year and a half and there is NEVER anyone there. The busiest time was late in the afternoon during peak tourist season last summer when there were two or three tables both inside and out that had diners, including my partner and myself. I've always enjoyed the food, they change the menu frequently. Salads, burgers, and milkshakes are the highlights. All very creative and fresh, with interesting sauces and sides. I'm really concerned about the lack of business though... like most Halifax restaurants that offer quality food, I fear they will eventually be forced to close(while Montana's, East Side Mario's, etc are always packed). Perhaps the hotel and the steak house upstairs can keep it going. I'm really angry at Haligonians for not getting into the dining-out scene; and I'm not wealthy, in fact, I'm a poor student. But I can still afford to eat out once or twice a month.
