After six years of bringing great meals, cocktails and jazz to downtown Dartmouth, Nectar Restaurant & Wine Bar (62 Ochterloney Street) announced this morning that it would serve its last customers on Sunday, June 21. The doors won't be closed for too long, though—the restaurant has been sold
and the unnamed new owners will reveal their plans "in coming days" to North Brewing Company and Brooklyn Warehouse, one hell of a food and drink dynamic duo. This tasty collaboration between Peter Burbridge, and George and Leo Christakos will bring "a beer-centric eatery" and some surprises to Ochterloney Street. "We are very excited in becoming a part of the ever-growing downtown Dartmouth community and food scene," they say, via email.
Nectar's Joelle and Ian Hurst—who took over the five-time Best of Halifax award-winning restaurant in 2012—said in this morning's release that they'll "miss the daily interaction with the members of Nectar's extended family, and our fellow downtown Dartmouth entrepreneurs. This has been a wonderful experience."
From Monday, June 8 through its closing date, Nectar will serve brunch (Saturdays and Sundays) and dinner, and will also host a weekend jazz series during its final weekend (June 19-21).
