Face it: unless you're a hockey fan, you have no real need to go to that end of Halifax. OK, there is a post office and a Sobeys nearby. But apart from them, this is an out-of-the-way place.
In other words, Brooklyn Warehouse *IS* the destination it deserves to be. It is most definitely worth going out-of-the-way for.
First off, I've been here before - but their menu changes almost monthly, so whatever I had last time probably wasn't on this menu (except Pigfish - that I remember). Besides, I'm getting old, and I can't even remember what I had for breakfast this morning (Ed. probably the same as yesterday & the day before).
Secondly, in the spirit of full disclosure, this was a free meal - I sponsored BW's initial crowd-funding project. And indeed, we were sat in the extension I helped fund. It has been very tastefully done.
The food? Well, what do you expect me to say? It was superb.
Our attentive server offered us a little 'amuse bouche' to begin with - a Lychee (I think), in balsamic (I think) and fresh mint (I'm sure).
For starters, my partner had the Tamales (pulled pork in suet rolls), which I found too heavy, but my partner loved the pork & mole mixture. She said the suet was the lightest she'd ever had.
I had the Moules Frites and they were both very good, although the moules were a bit small. The celeriac remoulade was gorgeous - I wanted to spread it on toast!
For main, I had the Coq Au Vin, which we thought was fabulous. The purple barley is an odd combo, but it worked.
My companion had the striped bass, which was to-die for. She thought the boulangere potatoes were overdone (like a wet brick), but I thought they added the right amount of moisture to the fish.
We finished off by sharing a home-made (at Dee-Dee's) mango sorbet, which was huge & delicious.
You will notice that pork bellies feature heavily at BW. That is good. That is very good. I recommend any dish that features pork bellies.
Thanks Leo, thanks George, we'll be back.
And yes, I would have happily paid for this meal - I'd probably have been willing to pay more than the posted prices.
PS. BW now accepts reservations. Didn't used to. Does now.
