“This is the place for those who want the best of everything without the taint of pretension.”
Tucked away on West 4th in Kitsilano is a legendary restaurant with a big reputation. For more than 20 years John Bishop has led the field in serving food that is organic, produced locally and sustainably. Many consider his eponymous Bishop’s to be Canada’s version of Chez Panisse. With a reputation like that, lots of people don’t realize that Bishop’s is also a cosy neighbourhood haven serving quality dishes at affordable prices. John and Chef Carlson work directly with fishers, producers and growers to source the pick-of-the-crop and menus change constantly to reflect this.
Dining at Bishop’s is like having dinner at the home of an elegant friend. From the warm reception that greets you to a table dressed in “soothing linen” surrounded by spectacular West Coast First Nations art, you know you will be pampered in this urban oasis of calm.
Abel Jacinto presides over a wine cellar that features the best of British Columbia with hard-to- find and rare wines from around the world. The list is consistently updated.
John and his restaurant have been honoured with numerous awards including:
Mobil Travel Guide Four Stars, 2008
Gold Medal, Cuisine Canada National Cookbook Awards 2008 (for Fresh)
Inaugural recipient of the Green Award, Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards
Best Restaurant (numerous years), Vancouver Magazine Restaurant Awards
