SAW Dinner at The Canteen 

Renee Lavallee’s The Canteen has been serving what it calls " honest, unpretentious food, made with love" to an appreciative audience since relocating to Portland Street with a full service restaurant in 2017. The Canteen's offerings are influenced by classic French, Italian and traditional Nova Scotian cuisine - with a little bit of Renée's magic thrown in.
Renée has a long list of professional accolades and has been the spokesperson for a number of culinary brands and organizations, including Taste of Nova Scotia, Select Nova Scotia, Community Food Centres Canada and Dairy Farmers of Canada.  She is an ardent supporter of local farmers, fishers and various other food producers.

SAW has had two great dinners with Renee at her old location with Two If By Sea and are looking forward to dining with her at her new location.


Cream of celery root soup w/ wild mushrooms
