West Queen West gets new 5,000 square foot restaurant and 'heavy metal dude ranch'

The latest in what's becoming a long line of high-design restaurants, begun with Commute Home's work on King Street's Kultura, is set to open in the next couple of weeks.

Parts & Labour is being put together by Kei Ng and Brian Richer, the men behind Oddfellows and the design firm Castor. The chef, Matty Matheson, is also the culinary force behind Oddfellows. The designer of the space, working in conjunction with the chef and owners, is Victoria Taylor, who will be putting an idiosyncratic stamp (described by Richer as "heavy metal dude ranch") on the 5,000 square foot space at 1566 Queen West, west of Lansdowne at Sorauren.

"It's the last frontier for Queen West," says Ng, "and we're excited to shape this particular environment and contribute to the community at large."

In addition to a 30-foot bar, the space will feature six communal tables and an 1,800 square foot roof garden where the team plans to grow many of its ingredients.
