Paying tribute to the culinary traditions of Nova Scotia, Chef Walsh’s menus will have a distinctive and contemporary Maritime flair, featuring familiar and celebrated local ingredients.

One of Canada’s most revered and highly respected chefs, Chef Walsh first garnered attention as Executive Chef of Canoe.

There, his leadership, unrivalled culinary craftsmanship and visionary sense for haute Canadian cuisine played a vital role in the restaurant’s meteoric ascent on the country’s fine dining scene.
