The GOODS from The Parker

Vancouver, BC | The Parker’s summer menu from executive chef Curtis Luk is sure to be the hot ticket this summer. Highlights include ratatouille with heirloom tomatoes, sea asparagus and labneh as well the daily house-made alkaline noodles with fresh summer vegetables and spicy Sichuan tomato sauce. The gorgeous house-made cheese (plated with torched local honey, poached rhubarb and our caraway lavash crackers with edible flowers) was built to pair with Steve Da Cruz‘s wine program and is best served on our petite patio. Drawing rave reviews for dessert is the new cucumber sorbet served with summer fruit and olive oil cake (have it with a splash of chilled Pimm’s Nø.1 for the definitive summer dénouement). At the bar, manager Nich Box has personally selected a list of his favourite aperitifs to start your evening and continues to impress with new cocktails. Try the Saemundur made with Longtable Aquavit, fresh mint, cherry syrup and lemon bitters with soda – it’s the tall, cold drink for long, hot summer nights.

Book your table tonight or wander through beautiful Chinatown and saunter up to the bar or dine al fresca on our licensed patio. We look forward to making your next visit memorable.
