Picnic at Dart is a collaboration between the Dart Gallery and Picnic, until now a pop-up restaurant run by Chef Allan (“Al”) McPherson. After a year of memorable and delicious pop-ups at the Dart Gallery featuring menus inspired by art exhibits honouring David Bowie, Jim Henson, and the movies of 1984, Dart and Picnic have joined forces to offer a dining experience like none other. At Picnic at Dart you can enjoy art, amazing food and drinks in a relaxed and elegant setting.

Chef Al is trained in classical French cuisine, has worked in some of Halifax’s best fine dining establishments, and has been a BBQ ‘pit-boss’ for a few years. His style of cooking can be characterized as “modern North American” with both French and Asian influences. He enjoys experimenting with modernist cooking techniques and has been called an ‘creative genius.'. His dishes at Picnic at Dart take inspiration from the current art show at Dart, and the menu will change with each new exhibit.
