Earlier this year Kitsilano’s well-loved Bishop’s Restaurant announced that it would be closing for good on August 1st, after 35 years of running the business.

Owner and chef John Bishop opened his namesake restaurant in 1985 on West 4th Avenue.

“It has been a terrific run,” said Bishop. “After 35 years, our customers have become good friends, but now I want to spend more time with my own family and get to work on another book. I also want to use these next few months to say thank you to my customers and our entire team, the people who made all of this possible. My name may be on the door, but Bishop’s is all about a team effort, and that includes the dozens of local farms and suppliers who provide us with the incredible seasonal ingredients we prepare for your plate.”

With August 1st fast approaching and COVID-19 pandemic restrictions still in effect, Bishop’s is returning to offer takeout service Tuesday through Saturday from 4pm to 8pm.

A number of mains, sides, and desserts are available as well as a Dinner For Two option for $90 that includes crisp romaine salad with hand-peeled shrimp and lobster, dungeness crab & wild sockeye salmon cakes, mashed potato puree, and Death By Chocolate for dessert.

Diners can order online here or by phone.
