HALIFAX — The team behind Halifax’s Field Guide restaurant have launched a new eatery inspired by an Alfred Noyes poem by the same name, Highwayman.
Field Guide owners Dan Vorstermans and Ceilidh Sutherland teamed up with bartenders Adam MacLeod and Michael Hopper to bring the Spanish-inspired restaurant to life.
The 40-seat restaurant and bar’s design blends old with new, embracing the character of the 19th-century building which houses it, while incorporating modern design elements and a moody colour palette influenced by Noyes’ poem.
The kitchen, helmed by Vorstermans, produces dishes such as Boquerones (anchovies) and chips ($7); ravioli with whey and pine nuts ($16); halibut stew ($13); and Crema Catalan ($9).
Unlike its sister restaurant, Highwayman’s cocktail offerings focus on spirits such as Sherry and Amaro, resulting in creations like the Adonis, which features Oloroso Sherry, Dolin Rouge and Plymouth Gin ($13) and the Solera Negroni made with Brugal White Rum, Deluxe Cream Sherry and Campari ($13).
