One of the Top Restaurants in Halifax Launches a Bold New Menu

Harbourstone Sea Grill & Pour House at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel Excites the City's Appetite for Local Cuisine

HALIFAX, NS--(Marketwired - Oct 30, 2014) - There's something about a waterfront location that inspires everything from architecture to activities. And the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel's nautically-inspired Harbourstone Sea Grill & Pour House is no exception, taking cues from the ocean for both its design and menu. As a result, locals and guests alike have made it a favourite among restaurants in Halifax, NS. Harbourstone's winter menu launches November 3rd, 2014.

Diners at this seafood restaurant in Halifax will find an exciting selection of new menu items, including those that feature meat and vegetarian options. The Short-rib Ravioli Bites, for example, make a great start to any meal, while the Dirty Reuben (sauerkraut, house-made mustard and pickle on dark rye) is both savoury and satisfying. For something lighter and seasonal try the new Maple Squash Salad composed of arugula, young kale, grapefruit, fennel and dried cranberries, with a pomegranate goat-cheese drizzle. Regulars will still find favourites like the famous Avery's Lobster Roll and homemade seafood chowder.

Harbourstone really shines in its seafood, as evidenced by the new crispy Faroe Island salmon served with shallot risotto and lemon jam. Not only is the dish itself a worthy selection, but the salmon reflects the restaurant's commitment to both locally-produced ingredients and sustainable seafood. Salmon from the Faroe Islands are raised on a diet of natural fish products and are regularly moved around the islands. These practices produce healthy, delicious fish that don't impact the fragile marine ecosystem.

Enjoying a reputation as one of the best options for dining in Halifax, NS, the restaurant now complements its acclaimed menu and local craft beers with live music on Wednesday nights starting at 5 p.m.

Whether guests are starting their night at this Halifax hotel; ending it after a day of business or sightseeing, everyone can look forward to savouring a taste of the sea.
