Anyone looking to roast their own marshmallows at a downtown Halifax table might want to visit The Middle Spoon Desserterie and Bar.
The new restaurant has inked a deal with Starfish Properties to set up in the former Carsand-Mosher building on Barrington Street, next to Argyle Fine Art.
“It’s supposed to be a nice comfy place where you can go for a date or a girls night out and have a nice dessert and a martini,” said Ciaran Doherty, whose wife, Lacey, is the driving force behind the establishment slated to open in mid-June.
They are hoping to draw from the Neptune Theatre crowd, as well as diners who eat in one restaurant but want a change of scenery before satiating their sweet tooth.
“We’ve been kind of kicking around the idea for a while,” said Ciaran Doherty, who helps run his family’s 26 dry cleaning establishments in Nova Scotia, which operate as Don Schelew Dry Cleaning and Same Day Dry Cleaners.
