The Bishop arrives May 13 and will add another restaurant to Avondale Estates’ increasingly busy downtown business district.
Brooke Lane, spokesperson for The Bishop restaurant, said the restaurant will open Tuesday, May 13, at 4 pm. It will be located at North Clarendon Avenue, not far from another Avondale Estates Restaurant, Pallookaville.
The restaurant’s opening was pushed back from May 6 due to a delay in construction. Owner Luellen Marshall is a resident of Avondale Estates.
