OfficialLocation-black

We’re happy to share that we’ll be taking part in The Coast’s Burger Week this year, at Seasons by Atlantica! The event is bigger than ever, with over 60 participating restaurants. We’ll be involved in two ways, first, with the offering of our official #HFXBurgerWeek burger, created by Luis, which is called the Long Yard. It’s comprised of a six-inch spiced lamb loaf, homemade lamb peameal bacon, labneh, compressed cucumber and watercress on pan fried focaccia bread. Yum. The price is $16, plus tax, $5 of which will be donated to FEED Nova Scotia! Burger Week starts on March 19; read a full list of participants here.

The second way we’re involved with Burger Week is that we’ll be a stop on the Burger Bus delicious burger tour! Taste Halifax has partnered with The Coast to offer a tour around town stopping at select Burger Week venues to taste their burgers and sample local beer, before Burger Week has even started! This event will sell out SUPER fast, read more about it here. The Burger Bus starts on March 6.

Happy Burger Week, everyone!
