This restaurant closed down a few months ago; however, a beer and food enterprise is coming up tomorrow. It is called Battery Park Beer and Eatery brought together by North Brewing Company and The Brooklyn Warehouse Restaurant.

My husband and I had a lovely meal here last week. The food and wine were fabulous. Our server, Alex, was exceptional. His knowledge of the wine list (I believe he is the bar manager) and the food menu was very helpful in making choices.

Description
Modern contemporary design, at the cross roads of casual and upscale. We are well priced versus our competitive set. Almost nothing is purchased pre-prepared. We make our stocks from scratch. Our Foccacia and Fettuccine are also house made. Chef Stefan is a young, passionate, European trained culinarian. He has worked around the world to hone his craft...Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, the Muskokas and now Dartmouth. He eats, sleeps and breathes food, bringing excitement and a mentoring style to the kitchen. He can get excited about a bunch of kale or a tenderloin...If it is perfect! In his words "you have to respect and honour the food". We are a 4 minute walk from the Halifax ferry on the Dartmouth side of the harbour.
