Wine and Dine

 

Eating and drinking establishments certainly come and go here as they do anywhere else. Have you got a memory from one of these places? For your nostalgic pleasure, I have compiled a list which I will continue to add to as I recall or discover long-gone Halifax restaurants, taverns, lounges, etc. If you know of one I haven't listed here, or can correct or add to anything I have listed here, factually or anecdotally, feel free to email me at webmaster@halifaxhistory.ca.
