Karin Lazzaris and Adam Pegg have reopened La Quercia after a brief closure for a room and menu refresh.
Don’t worry, you’ll still find this Italian spot cozy and classic but now with a more extensive offering of fresh pastas and risottos, along with classic starters and mains.
La Quercia opened in 2008 is focused on Italian cooking, simple classics produced with top quality ingredients.
Over the years the team has found diners have become more educated, and many restaurants have switched to family-style dining service, a choice that was once rather unique.
As a result, La Quercia is now offer family-style to tables of seven or more, and suggests that larger tables might care to sit in their adjacent wine bar, L’ufficio.
Earlier this year L’Ufficio received the top award for the Westside in the Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards.
The new menu is inspired by the Italian Chefs that Pegg worked with in Italy with options for vegetarians and a selection of mains changing with the season due to availability of produce, meat and seafood.
La Quercia continues to source as locally and organically as possible and works with suppliers to bring the best of the season to the table. Chef Pegg’s sister, Lauren Pegg, farms the lamb that La Quercia frequently serves and the ducks comes from the Fraser Valley’s Lowstock Farm.
