Halifax Essentials

I'll have a few days and would love to know what I must try--I'm open to anything but I'm mostly interested in seafood and any local specialities... however common or unusual.

    If you search this board you'll find many recommendations.
    Most will agree that Fid, Chives and Janes on the Common are some of the best places to eat.

      I will agree with Janes on the Commons, haven't tried FID and disagree with Chives. Waited over a year to try Chives and I, along with my three dining buddies, were all dissapointed with our meals at Chives. Average at best, lacking in flavour all around. I consider myself, and so do my friends, a very good cook, and I know I could prepare more flavourful dishes. I would also recommend Mezza on Quinpool and Brooklyn Warehouse on Windsor.

        My Halifax trip has been postponed to July... Any seasonal foods I should look for that time of year?
