Private Dining and Special Event

Purveyor of Rare Fare

At the heart of Argyle Street, East of Grafton is serving up creative takes on classic comfort food.

Our pasta is always fresh-made in house, and our sliders are reason enough to elicit return visits. We borrow the best of world cuisine and bring it to you with our eclectic attitude behind every dish. Asian, Caribbean, Mexican—it’s all here, and it’s all really, really good.

Whether you live down the street, or you’ve never been to Halifax before, you’ll feel right at home here. Rustic wood beams, leather-wrapped banquettes, and glowing Edison light bulbs create an inviting atmosphere unlike anything else you’ll find on the block—or in the city. Grab a bite in between meetings, a pint after work, or a creative cocktail before a night at the theatre. You’ll be in good company at East of Grafton.


Committed to a Focus on Local

At East of Grafton, we like to keep things close to home. All syrups and bitters for our cocktails are made in-house, and we’ve got the best in local brews—with five regular selections plus our featured tap. The featured keg rotates, and our menu does too so we can bring you the freshest ingredients of the season.
