The GOODS from The Parker
Vancouver, BC | The Parker will be extending their weekend brunch to week-long service beginning December 26th to the 30th of December. Union Street’s newest hotspot will also be open on the 1st of January for savvy New Year’s Eve partygoers looking to nurse themselves back to health with locally sourced vegetarian fare.
After weeks of glutinous holiday snacking, The Parker will be offering a healthy alternative to the traditional greasy spoon brunch. Along with vegetarian takes on the usual brunch suspects, the menu will also include signature items like the gluten free waffles with apple compote, candied walnuts and maple syrup; and the tofu scramble with quinoa, mushrooms and cilantro.
Brunch will be served from 10am – 2pm from the 26th to the 30th of December and the 1st of January, resuming normal weekend hours in the New Year. The Parker is open Tuesday to Saturday for lunch and dinner, Saturday and Sunday for brunch. For Boxing Day shoppers looking for a special place to don their new apparel, tickets are still available for The Parker Osake dinner pairing on New Years Eve.

ABOUT THE PARKER
The Parker is the latest collaboration between Jason Leizert & Steve Da Cruz (both Boneta & Corner Suite alumni). Built with the intent to achieve zero waste and the desire to become a sexy destination for the discerning diner, The Parker is quickly becoming known for in-the-box thinking. Two seats at the bar will deliver a ringside view of Jason delivering his almost daily changing menu (usually by himself) in a 60 sqft kitchen whilst Steve delivers dynamite cocktails and expounds on his wine program based on the Columbia Watershed Basin. Open for Lunch, Brunch and of course Dinner, the little room seeks to accommodate all dietary restrictions with aplomb.
Most recently, as we forlornly said goodbye to the amazing late-summer Tomatoes that SOLE Foods provided via The Astoria, we welcomed the arrival of Kohlrabi Carpaccio, Hand-made Carrot Agnolotti and Rainbow Chard. We also regularly feature vegetables grown in the our SBIA garden ‘just behind the Mister Lube’ on Hastings & Clark by the Waldorf. From the bar, Steve has created some unique destination-worthy potions, most potable being the current New Strathcona made with Bourbon & Candied Calamata Olive Syrup. Of course, off-the-cuff requests are always encouraged.
The Parker serves Dinner Tuesday through Saturday starting at 530PM, Lunch Tuesdays through Fridays and Brunch on the weekends beginning at 10AM. Reservations and walk-ins are both welcome. Reservations can be made via theparkervancouver.com or by calling 604 779 3804.
