When deprived of flavourful sustenance, the mouth will often retaliate by shouting your bank-account number at sporting events or turning every sentence into a high-pitched jingle. Tame an unruly tongue with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of seafood and pub fare at The Atlantic Trap & Gill.
The East Coast–oriented Atlantic Trap serves up a menu of fresh seafood flown in from PEI and Nova Scotia, along with other traditional pub-fare items and 12 beers on tap. Fresh Atlantic cod beer battered in Keith's IPA makes up the crucial ingredient in the kitchen's vaunted fish 'n' chips ($11), which vies with fresh mussels in a white-wine sauce for diners' attentions via jousting matches ($11). Sate turf cravings with an open-faced Halifax donair ($10) or the Trap burger, a charbroiled 6-ounce beef patty topped with bacon, cheddar, barbecue sauce, and onion rings ($12). The bar's dozen draft beers include an offering from eastern locale Nova Scotia ($5.50–$7.75). While consuming these comestibles and potables, guests can divvy up their attention among the establishment's five flat-screen TVs and three pool tables, or, on weekends, soulfully croon along with live music performed by folk and Celtic bands ($5 cover charge).
