The GOODS from The Parker

Vancouver, BC | The Parker had such a blast with their Boxing Week brunch service that they are making it permanent, rounding out their lunch menu with brunch and breakfast dishes. No need to wait until the weekend for a mid-day Bennie. Now you can order your favorites all week long. The Parker makes keeping that New Year’s resolution to eat healthy, locally sourced foods easy with a mouth-watering array of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. Choose from specialty items such as the cassoulet, made with poached egg, mushrooms and roasted garlic; the addictive chickpea fries served with house made ketchup; the Spicy Tofu Scramble, complete with mushrooms, quinoa and bok choy; or the eggs benedict made with poached eggs, hashbrowns and lemon hollandaise; as well as a daily menu that changes to reflect what is available from local farmers and foragers. The Parker also offers the perfect liquid complement to any brunch item with listings such as the Bloody Mary, made with vodka, tomato juice and tamari (wheat-free, naturally brewed soy sauce); and the Sake Snap, created from Osake Junmai, Stone’s ginger wine and finished with a pickled beet garnish.

Weekday brunch now runs Tuesday to Friday from 11am to 2pm. Weekend brunch will continue to run Saturday to Sunday from 10am to 2pm. See theparkervancouver.com for more details.

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, Brunch/Lunch Tuesdays through Fridays 11am – 2pm and 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.

    dear scout magazine,
    great article, once again.
    i just would like to clarify that under ‘people’ you show the designer as martin warren when in fact he’s the builder (as you can see on his website: http://www.vanglo.ca/#!the-parker/cz93 ).
    the designer and architect is Michel Laflamme Architect, AIBC.
    thanks kindly.
