Side­car revs up

The Coast - - SHOPTALK - —AS

Joe and Bethany Gurba are pretty into books. The co-own­ers of Dartmouth’s com­ing-soon The Watch That Ends The Night (15 King’s Wharf Place)—a bar and restau­rant that nods to the 1958 Hugh MacLen­nan novel of the same name—even toyed with the idea of sell­ing them from in­side the eatery. “It’s ba­si­cally a restau­rant that’s aes­thetic is built on our love for Cana­dian lit­er­a­ture,” says Joe. The idea has since evolved to be­come Side­car Goods. An en­clave side­kick shop to The Watch for peo­ple who love food and drink, Side­car was in­spired by Ed­mon­ton’s Duchess Bakeshop, and its com­pan­ion fancy pantry store Duchess Pro­vi­sions. “It’ll be a hobby shop that we al­ways wanted to go to,” says Joe. “With the best from abroad that we can’t get in Nova Sco­tia, or the best of Nova Sco­tia that will we would love to put in peo­ples hands.” That in­cludes choco­late, cof­fee, bit­ters, pre­serves, chef knives and cook­books. Side­car Goods’ open­ing will come hand-in-hand with The Watch’s in mid-Oc­to­ber.
