The constantly changing menu at Untitled Eats is crafted to suit the gallery’s current exhibitions. Executive Chef Luther Shaver has built a seductive, internationally inspired spread based on Skin, the current rotating exhibition at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Halifax. Starters currently include the shrimp cocktail, poached in saffron and ginger ($8), and the cheese plate with Canadian brie, whipped chevre, and Danish blue ($14). Entrees include the locally sourced free-range beef burger with chipotle relish ($13), and the warm duck confit in a lemon and curry emulsion ($17), and desserts such as chocolate-vanilla marbled cheesecake ($8).
The gallery’s walls brim with rotating installations from contemporary artists, as well as folk art and pieces from Nova Scotia.<p>
Discussion of artwork drifts among tables, punctuated by the jingle of silverware at Untitled Eats. Inside the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Halifax, chefs at the eatery craft a menu of international fusion cuisine, all inspired by exhibitions at the museum and the availability of seasonal ingredients. Drawing on experience accrued while cooking at The Armview, they bustle through the kitchen, searing free-range beef on a grill, roasting couscous, and bringing the flavour from summer vegetables with open flame. Designed by Ian Greig, the bistro's understated, contemporary decor includes a stone bar top mined from the same quarry as the gallery's red sandstone exterior and the world’s slowest car. Handmade light fixtures by Bear River master craftsman Chief Greg McEwan shine down on a striped floor patterned off a geological cross-section of Pictou County.
