And they're a power couple, to say the least. The pair spent the last 10 years travelling and working with food in the Caribbean, the Maldives, Egypt and Singapore, where Van Antwerp was the executive chef at the Fullerton Hotel and Lambert was the in-house chef and liason for the Asian Food Channel.
"We decided we wanted to move back to Canada to raise our kids and we spent one year in BC before we made the move to Halifax two years ago," says Lambert. "Morné worked with The Bertossi Group at The Bicycle Thief, but when the opportunity of owning our own restaurant came up, we decided to take a chance."
Working together to improve upon the former Fiasco, Lambert and Van Antwerp have changed the menus, offering up weekly changing local, sustainable features, and are now open for both lunch and dinner.
