We’ve invited Main Street’s outstanding Acorn restaurant to join our GOODS section as a fine establishment in which one can healthily while away an hour or two. They are now proud members of Scout, and as such we will be posting their news in addition to hosting a page for them on our awesome list of sweet goodnesses. We’d like to take this chance to thank them for their support, and for making Vancouver a much more delicious place to live.

ABOUT THE PARKER
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 Curtis Luk 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 SOLEFoods 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.
