The legacy of jane’s on the common has made its way to Gottingen. Jenna Mooers—whose mother Jane Wright was behind the beloved north end eatery—is following suit, opening a similar, tapas-style restaurant next door to jane's next door at 2053 Gottingen Street. For Mooers, the new location is what’s most exciting. “Halifax traditionally has been pretty separated,” she says. “But the mix of commercial and residential is what makes a community.”

With the aim of opening in early May, Mooers' Edna will use locally-sourced ingredients to help nourish the “mind, body and soul.” Renovations have been underway since January, with Breakhouse in charge of interior-design, which will include a communal table and large bar. A menu is still in the works but a chef has already been chosen. “He’s been in the local scene for a while,” says Mooers, who has decided to keep her culinary artist a secret (for now).
