My HB will be celebrating his 40th birthday soon and I am looking for recommendations on a great place to go. We moved here in July but haven't actually eaten out a lot! He has expressed a desire to try some "real Alberta beef," meaning organic and straight from the farm, no chain steakhouses, and preferably a place where you can request the cut and amount to order. He liked Jon Allen's steakhouse in Halifax, if that is a guide for anyone who may be familiar with it. Apart from steak, he likes traditional French cooking and anything that makes a point of using fresh, local ingedients (though any place that uses the word "fusion" is out).
Any suggestions are much appreciated!
