Profile Last Updated: April 30, 2008
After winning numerous critics and readers awards (including restaurant of the year), Bishop's keeps doing what it's always done: offering up chef/owner John Bishop's always-creative take on Pacific Coast cuisine. Some of the best restaurant service in the city keeps patron coming back to this every trendy Kits locale.
But anyone who goes to Bishop's is there for the food and food alone: culinary creations that are that are a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds, featuring Bishop's colourful and sophisticated use of fresh ingredients. One signature dish: seared scallops overlaid with a web of crispy potato. And with after-dinner items such as the carmelized pear tart with cormeal crust, you'll want to be sure to leave room for dessert.
Other features of note include an extensive wine list (leaning heavily on British Columbia vintners) and top-flight service with a uniquely personal touch.
