Parts & Labour (@partsnlabour). Just next to Cowbell in Parkdale, it’s an uncommonly large space (converted convenient store) where one can enjoy a relaxed dinner at long communal tables. Opened in 2010, they quickly expanded from dinner to brunch and even catering. Chef Matthew Matheson has a rooftop garden from which he sources some of his ingredients. The food’s well-executed and very affordable, the cocktails are supposedly stellar, and there’s live music downstairs in The Shop. How can this not be promise of a great meal?!
