Who we are
We cook the food we as chefs love to eat: Fun, rewarding, delicious, unpretentious recipes made from scratch with great attention to detail.
The food at 2 Doors Down follows the same culinary DNA as our sister restaurant Chives Canadian Bistro. Chef and owner Craig Flinn and our chef de cuisine Andrew Farrell collaborate to bring a fresh, modern style of casual dishes using a local and seasonal ingredient base. Working closely with Nova Scotia and some Maritime farmers and artisan food producers, our menus change with the seasons and always attempt to showcase the best of what our great region has to offer.
We believe a burger is not just a ground beef sandwich. Poutine is not just French fries covered in cheese and gravy. A steak and mushroom pie is steeped in history. A meatball can be magical!
The simplest and most familiar dishes can be prepared in a way that commits them to memory.
General manager and wine enthusiast George Davis approaches our beverage program in a similar way to our food style: delicious, fun, and ingredient based. We’ve sourced the coolest wine, beer, and spirits we could find from far-and-near. We believe our guests appreciate that approach.
Building on our respected wine list at Chives Canadian Bistro, the 2 Doors Down wine list has been assembled to showcase small lot and unique wines of affordable value from our own backyard and around the world. In addition to this list, please see our ever-changing wine board for unique limited finds.
Our bar is stocked with aged bourbons, rums, and ryes that we have hand selected to feature each spirit’s unique quality. In addition, we will be featuring only locally brewed craft beers on tap showcasing the best of Nova Scotia.
Our lists are eclectic and fun with a focus on value. Relax and sit deeply at our long bar. And drink what you like.
