Best Use Of Local Ingredients

  • Meghan Tansey Whitton

Gold Winner The Wooden Monkey, Halifax

Silver Winner The Canteen

Bronze Winner Chives Canadian Bistro

The Wooden Monkey is as detail-oriented as they get. The 14-year-old restaurant has always been committed to making sure what goes into its dishes is good, in all senses of the word. And its commitment to serving local, organic food and drink as much as possible hasn’t wavered after all these years. Getaway Farms, Sambro Fisheries, Hutten Family Farm, Riverview Herbs, Propeller Brewing Company, Avondale Sky Winery, That Dutchman’s Cheese Farm—the list of Nova Scotian suppliers that make these meals so good goes on and on and on and on. Congratulations to The Monkey for taking the term “home-cooked meal” to a whole new level.
