Chef Grant Gard and his wife Anna opened Part and Parcel in Quadra Village five years ago and still have some of the same staff.
Even as the little restaurant has grown, devoted as it is to handcrafted cooking and fresh, seasonal ingredients, it’s stayed the same. Gard and his cooks rotate through their ever-changing seasonal inventory, posting new menus on Facebook and Instagram almost daily, tweaking their favourites, from house-made gnocchi and risotto to salads and sandwiches, to reflect the fresh ingredients that arrive at the back door.
All of that means they’re doing something good — perfect, really — and why so many people keep coming back.
That’s what Gard had in mind when he opened Part and Parcel.
“We wanted to have a small community restaurant in a neighbourhood where people could come a few times a week and not break the bank,” he says.
They’ve stayed true to their mission — and people love it.
