Located in Halifax’s up and coming North End, Agricola Street Brasserie is a place where our neighbours can gather in a convivial and communal atmosphere while enjoying some of the best food available on the East Coast. The Brasserie is an urban restaurant and bar serving French inspired seasonal home-style cooking with robust earthy dishes, and slow–cooked food in a warm, neighbourhood setting.
The space is designed to accommodate a variety of dining experiences. The main dining area can accommodate up to 60 diners in long banquettes and stand-alone tables designed to fit anywhere from an intimate table for two to a festive party of twelve. The long butcher block bar can accommodate up to 18 and is a place where people can enjoy a glass of wine after work, a bar snack, or a full menu during dinner hours. The lounge window seats offer a cozy nook for quiet conversation and, during the warm months, the windows fold open so that one can watch the world go by over a pint of locally crafted beer. Further inside the Brasserie is an open kitchen where one can sit at the kitchen counter and enjoy the inner workings of the brasserie kitchen while upstairs, the mezzanine overlooking the kitchen, can accommodate large groups up to 25. Alternatively, we can also accommodate up to 80 people for a sit down dinner should you wish to host a private party or wedding celebration.
Agricola Street Brasserie got its name not just because of its location but because of what the word Agricola represents to both the Brasserie and to Nova Scotia. From 1818 to 1822, John Young used Agricola – (latin for Farmer) as his pen name to advocate for Nova Scotia to become agriculturally independent. This lends itself well to what the Brasserie’s mandate is–to bring in as many locally sourced products as possible, and to create dishes around the changing seasons.
The best way to have the freshest ingredients is to have them on your table as soon as they’re take from the ground. To ensure this we have built close relationships with farmers and local suppliers. One of our most exciting relationships is with Sober Island Oysters which has developed so well, they even have an entire oyster long line dedicated to The Brasserie!
