I'm going to Halifax (probably with a bunch of others) for training. Staying with another fellow Montrealer from the same office at the Radisson on Hollis Street. The office is on 1959 Upper Water St. We are given a $50 allowance per day and we're leaving Thursday at 5:15pm...so that leaves us with three dinners, four lunches and breakfast every morning.
Any suggestions for restaurants? Given that our allowance is cumulative, we usually aim to skimp on breakfast and lunch and splurge on dinner (why not?). I'd much prefer grabbing my coffee and breakfast (fast) from elsewhere rather than Timmie's...which is what my fellow coworkers ended up coercing me into while I was in Toronto for training as well (arggghhh...watered down coffee with 18% cream)
I'm adventurous but not so much the others...I'm looking to go for seafood because I know it's good (been to the Maritimes in the past for a few days...vacationing). Checked a few places online and was looking at The Battered Fish, Five Fisherman (is it overhyped?) and The Press Gang.
Things I'd be interested in: definitely fish and chips (had it once on the streets, loved it), oysters (I know my fellow coworker loves it...raw or not) and of course lobster. Good sushi would be a plus but given that there's a bigger gang and I haven't met the rest of them (they're coming from other cities in Canada), I dont know if I can be that adventurous as I usually am.
Thanks in advance!
