Bish to close, Bicycle Thief to open

Bishop’s Landing fine dining resto to transform in 2011


Bish Wold Cuisine (Bishop’s Landing, 1475 Lower Water Street, 425-7993) will be hosting a “Last Supper” on New Years Eve, then closing its doors. The Bertossi Group, owners of Bish, Il Mercato and Ristorante a Mano, will then renovate the space and open a new restaurant in February 2011, called The Bicycle Thief---presumably named after the 1948 classic Vittorio de Sica picture Ladri Di Biciclette. According to the Bertossis, the new eatery will blend old world with new, offering “North American food with an Italian soul.” All Bertossi Group gift cards and Bish gift certificates will be honoured at the new place.
