primal kitchen – feed your instincts

Primal Kitchen HalifaxThe space is the same but definitely not the menu nor the dining esthetics.  Goodbye Fiasco, hello Primal Kitchen.  Last Friday I was invited by Laura Oakley to a VIP Media Event at PRIMAL Kitchen.  I had heard about the changes in the restaurant (same owners) and was intrigued as to what they would serve.  Chefs Morne Van Antwerp and Sue Ann Lambert (husband and wife duo) took over Fiasco last year but wanted to change from upscale dining to that of a more relaxed atmosphere.

I loved the sidewalk artwork – an indication as to what lies inside (see menu below).

Primal Kitchen bone marrowThis board of deliciousness caught my eye…I absolutely love bone marrow!  All the food sampled up to then was ‘get in ma belly’ goodness but I am a sucker for roasted bone marrow.

The moment you walk into the restaurant you know you’re in for a treat…it just feels different.  Drop by after work for a charcuterie and cheese board washed down with local beer or a glass of vino before diving into the rest of the menu.  You’ll be glad you did!

The Culinary Chase’s Note:  I am always pleasantly amazed at the culinary talent Nova Scotia tends to attract.  Halifax is a city with less than 400,000 but we LOVE to eat and drink!  If you’ve never been to Canada’s ocean playground, I invite you to savour the sites, food and local drink.  You won’t be disappointed.  Enjoy!
