Adam Pegg and Lucais Syme of Vancouver’s award-winning La Quercia restaurant deliver artfully crafted, Northern Italian cuisine at La Pentola della Quercia inside OPUS Hotel Vancouver. The Chef-duo’s intense passion for turning the best local ingredients into simple, deliciously executed Northern Italian fare can be shared in a family style or a la carte manner daily for breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night.
Vancouver’s mountainous region and moderate temperatures mirror that of Northern Italy, making it an ideal location for producing the locally grown vegetables and proteins that the chefs use in creating their signature authentic Northern Italian cuisine. Artfully crafted handmade pastas and custom “nose to tail” meat and fish are the focus at La Pentola, each carefully prepared in its natural state. The Chefs’ philosophy of importing Italian necessities such as olive oil and prosciutto contribute a rich simplicity to each dish.
The city’s most passionate and experienced servers welcome guests to La Pentola, each expertly trained and educated on all aspects of the menu’s preparation and presentation. Guests enjoy a sophisticated, yet casual room featuring Italian mosaic floors beneath butcher block and linen-covered tables. Copper pots hang against hues of vanilla, chocolate brown and grey.
