The Parker is a sexy and sustainable vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free restaurant, featuring the talents of Top Chef Canada’s Curtis Luk and renowned local barman Steve Da Cruz. We are heavily invested in building relationships with local farmers and produce, in order to acquire the most sustainable ingredients. At The Parker, we are extremely grateful for our suppliers, which include Sole Food Farms, Urban Digs Farm, Barnston Island Farms, Mikuni Wild Harvest, as well as the weekly Farmer’s Market just up the street.

We believe that supporting local farms is essential for food security and bolstering our own permaculture, but also to increase awareness of these vital resources to the public.
People everywhere are questioning where, how and why our food systems are the way they are, and how they can change them. The Parker by extension offers what we call, “Conscious Dining” as a link in this circle of community engagement.
