The Barrington
Alex Jolin

A world travelled chef, Chef Jolin has been cooking in restaurants since a young age. His talents have taken him around the world with stops and stages in Hong Kong, Merida, Portugal and the South of France where he worked at Hotel les Roches Rouge in Piana. Once back in Canada it wasn’t long before the East Coast started calling and a position with the Barrington brought him to Halifax. As Head Chef, he looks forward to highlighting Atlantic Beef, and showcasing all our region has to offer. If steak isn’t your thing, he’ll surely have a menu item to impress. It’s Chef Jolin’s curiosity about all aspects of the world that drives him to find new and exciting ways of creating dishes.


 Barrington St.

Steeped in history Barrington Street was widely regarded as the most fashionable street for promenading in Halifax, and by the 19th century it was considered as the main commercial district of the city. Although the origin of Barrington Street is reportedly unclear, one account suggests the street is named after William Barrington who served as a Secretary of War but was an “unknown” in 1749 when Halifax was founded.
