I found this little gem among my cookbooks; I picked it up a few years ago in a used bookstore and had forgotten about it. “Some Good!  City Food” (Judith Comfort) was published in 1987–25 years ago this year.
I’ve never cooked out of this book, the recipes are in italics and not especially easy to read. But there short ‘biographies’ of the key restaurants with up-close and personal information that gives a relatively unstable business a little bit of stability and serves as a glimpse into what the dining scene was like in Halifax a quarter of a century ago.  How many do you remember?
