It’s no secret that Edna is a superstar in the Halifax dining scene. Waiting an hour for a table on any ol’ Tuesday night is par for the course. The ever changing menu built upon the best Nova Scotia has to offer constantly draws me in, taunting me with what local delicacy I may be missing out on. From the small curated drink menu to the slick modern decor, there really isn’t anything I don’t love about Edna. And the vibe? Oh the vibe. It’s big city buzz meets small town charm and it’s awesome.
And now the rest of the world is in on it. Big news hit this morning that Edna snagged a spot in Air Canada enRoute’s Top 10 Best New Restaurants in Canada. This year I was beyond humbled to be asked to be a panelist for enRoute and, though part of me wanted to keep this local gem all for myself, they were at the top of my nominees list. You can imagine my excitement then when I was invited to dine at Edna with Mr. EnRoute himself while keeping the whole thing on the down low. Talk about thrilling! Our experience, like every single experience I’ve had at Edna, was nothing short of perfection. In my eyes, they had already made the cut.
So today put your hands together for Jenna, Ryan and the whole damn Edna team. I’m not sure the line ups will get longer but dang if it isn’t worth every minute.
And a big congrats to the other nine restaurants across Canada in the top ten. The gorgeous shots on enRoute’s site are enough to have me salivating all over my breakfast. Looks like I’ve got some travelling to do.
