I was very upset to read today that one of my favourite local restaurants, Sweet Basil has closed ("Bittersweet Basil," Sep 4, News). Sweet Basil was always a good time---one of those places I took visitors and friends to show them "my Halifax." Thank you to the staff there for the wonderful food, service and beautiful dining room---they were certainly very much appreciated! I am very sorry we have lost Sweet Basil, and even more sorry that an office building will be built in its place.
