A longtime proponent of seasonal, local cuisine, chef John Bishop opened his namesake restaurant in 1985, and it's been a Vancouver institution ever since. The walls of this bright 40-seat restaurant are adorned with contemporary and First Nations artwork; the tables are draped with crisp white linens. Executive chef Ron Shaw's haute-barnyard menu is almost 100 percent organic; the kitchen even butchers whole animals to make its own charcuterie. Petite Kumamotos and a sake–pear granita transport the typical plate of oysters to a whole new level. Other seasonal standouts include seafood risotto with spotted shrimp (a local prawn with a delicate flavor and firm texture), roasted free-range chicken with cured pork and root vegetable mash, and spring salmon paired with herbed parsnip latkes. All the desserts are impeccable, but don't miss the pure comfort apple bread pudding with apple-cider ice cream. There's also an eclectic list of local and imported wines, with an emphasis on half bottles. On the way out, pick up a copy of one of Bishop's user-friendly cookbooks.—Kasey Wilson
