Parker House?

Anyone heard anything about Parker House? I just passed it on 6th the other day - doesn't look close to opening, but a friend mentioned they are hiring, so must be opening soon.

  1. It opening mid-October. As far as I know, part of the dining room is in the basement (like Tribune). So, maybe that is why it doesn't look like too much yet?

    1. Just so everybody knows, this is in Calgary on the main floor of the Lougheed Building, 6th Ave side at the SE corner of 6th Ave and 1st St SW.

      This place will be MASSIVE.

      1. I heard it was a New England cuisine. Should open soon.

          Is there a website yet? I would love to see what the food is going to be. Is it going to be as big as Rush?

            Mr. Good Soup:

            Help me out. What is New England cuisine? I think of chowder or is it "chawdah", Boston beans, corned beef and cabbage, lobter boils and clam bakes....

              Part of it is Greek pizza, and we probably actually have more of that per capita than New England has...

              They started hiring hourly staff. It must be soon now!

            3. Just FYI - opening is scheduled for Oct 22.
              Background story in the Calgary Herald today (in the business section).
