HALIFAX, NS -- (Marketwired) -- 06/27/13 -- Getting one's sea legs can sometimes take the better part of an ocean voyage, but that's not the case at harbourstone sea grill & pour house. This new and artfully designed restaurant at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel is already up and running with a menu and decor that celebrate the bounty of the sea.

As the premier restaurant at this downtown Halifax hotel, harbourstone sea grill & pour house was designed to be both comfortable and inviting. Its sleek styling and rustic maritime accents complement a menu that creatively addresses the concept of modern seafood. Whether guests are visiting Nova Scotia on a weekend getaway or as part of a business trip, harbourstone is ready to impress.

Executive Chef Trevor Simms joined harbourstone after graduating from the Culinary Institute of Canada and working in more than 11 different kitchens across the country. His education and experiences -- not to mention his childhood in coastal Newfoundland -- have inspired him to create a menu that features locally sourced meats and daily specials fresh off the boat in a variety of small, shared and traditional plates. Diners can choose from items like mussels, an eponymous shellfish tower or scallops paired with honey-cured pork belly. Salads, sandwiches and burgers also appear on the all-day menu, while the breakfast and bar menus feature classic dishes alongside inventive items.

The best way to sample harbourstone's toothsome temptations, however, is through the Experience Dining Package at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel. Guests who book the package enjoy a deluxe guestroom and a three-course dinner for two at harbourstone, which includes appetizers, entrees and desserts, as well as two handcrafted signature cocktails. (Choose between the Blueberry Sling and Toasted Fisherman -- or try one of each!) The promotion is available through May 4, 2014 and is a great way for visitors to discover Nova Scotia's latest culinary sensation.

Travellers can learn more about the Experience Dining Package at http://www.marriott.com/specials/mesOffer.mi?marrOfferId=818417&displayLink=true. Rooms are limited, so visitors are encouraged to book their maritime-inspired adventures early!
