Owner Ben Bishop Jr. wanted to create a restaurant that would pay homage to Chesterfield’s roots. The result of his efforts is Bishop’s Post, a restaurant that touts “classic comfort fare,” but feels more like an American-style bistro. Bishop’s Post is a comfortable, beautiful restaurant, and its lush, landscaped patio — complete with a waterfall — is one of the loveliest in town. Food, however, is inconsistent. Appetizers range from a delicious sweet-corn and roasted green-chile tamale to a beef tenderloin bruschetta with caramelized onions, roasted garlic and Asiago cheese that is so tender it melts in the mouth. Entrees include a variety of steaks and chops, as well as bistro classics such as grilled duck breast and sautéed quail-breast medallions. Execution is spotty, but the setting and service are worth a drink and appetizer at happy hour.
