In business for more than 25 years, Bishop’s is an institution in the Vancouver dining scene – and for good reason. Serving locally-harvested, seasonal dishes long before this was the trend, 4th Avenue's most beloved and longstanding restaurant highlights the finest in Pacific Northwest cuisine. Beautiful bouquets and artwork from owner John Bishop’s personal collection help bring the intimate dining room to life.
In a cozy and bright space on the edge of Kitsilano, Chef Adam Pegg serves up refined yet decidedly unfussy Italian dishes that are elevated by his careful attention to detail. A visit to La Quercia, once the winner of Van Mag's "best new restaurant" and "best formal Italian" awards, is the perfect introduction to the slow-cooking tradition characteristic of northern Italian cuisine, with an ever-changing menu and many dishes served family style.
