Hi 'hounds! I'm so excited to finally get to come out to the east, my gf is from Yarmouth and we are flying in on August 15-19. We will be spending the first night (a Friday) in downtown Halifax, then after a trip to the market driving down the coast through Lunenburg (too bad, no time for Fleur de Sel this trip...) & to her hometown. I have done alot of research (much of it on these boards) but have some general questions about a few spots...In Halifax, dinner on the Friday night -- I narrowed a list of about 10 or so down to: Gio, Fid and Cut (grill menu looks like most fun), for this meal we would like oysters to be available but it's not imperative, we could always just grab a cocktail somewhere and have some too, most importantly we want a fun place. Local food focus is good, but basically the whole rest of the trip will be spent eating like that...Coming from Toronto and frequenting NYC there are plenty of uber-cool-hipster places to waste money, so we'd rather go somewhere with a notable chef and great food, not stuffy though, just not a trendy spot that puts the food second and just tries to impress with ambiance, etc...My choices might be all wrong, so any suggestions would be appreciated...also if there are any not to be missed experiences for the drive down I'd like to hear about them too.

PS: Any festivals or markets that will be on in the area(s) would be good tips too...
