If you took a peek at the cocktail menu at Bad Bishop, you’d see things like chai daiquiris and gingery hot toddies. You’d assume that a place like this, complete with Victorian wallpaper and jazz music playing would have some kind of terrine and caviar to snack on, but the menu is full of casual things like burgers, corn dogs, shoestring fries, and mac and cheese. Turns out, it’s all fantastic - even the romaine salad. Come here for your next day drinking session or solo dinner at the bar.
