Chef-Owner Marshall Bishop brings his training at Le Cordon Bleu Program of the California Culinary Academy (San Francisco) to this up-and-coming valley hot spot. A self-described “local boy living the American Dream,” Marshall’s culinary mission has carried him through some of San Francisco’s finest establishments, notably Restaurant Gary Danko (“Best Restaurant in America” – Zagat Survey). Along with his vast experience, Marshall brings the “American Tapas” (small plates) tasting menu that has become the trend at top restaurants around the world. The tasting menu allows guests to sample many different items in small portions; served as courses, these varied selections allow for a leisurely meal with intervals to enjoy libations and conservation – a pleasant and interesting way to dine Bishop's offers a daily-changing menu using innovative cooking techniques and many ingredients from producers within 100 miles: natural range-fed poultry, lamb and beef, organic produce, baked goods and coffee, and Caffee Classico’s Gelato and Sorbetto. The wine selection is unmatched in the area, featuring local and California regional wines – at least twenty-five by the glass. Monthly wine dinners each feature a different vineyard. Reservations are required for wine dinners, and are always strongly recommended.
