Bishop’s | Restaurant | A Vancouver institution named for its owner, John Bishop, a silver-haired Welsh gentleman. Opened on West 4th Avenue in 1986, Bishop’s is famous for its love affair with local, sustainable, and organic ingredients, as well as its support for local artists. It is one of the last bastions of fine dining in Vancouver. Many of BC’s best restaurant talents have worked here, among them Vikram Vij, Jeff Van Geest, Andrea Carlson, James Walt, Carol Chow, and Michael Allemeier (even Rob Feenie pulled a shift or two).

Usage: “I had dinner at Bishop’s last night and the service blew my mind.”
