Best Bar Dad - 2004
Harry Bishop Bars invariably take on the personalities of their owners, and Noche Cocina is blessed to have Harry Bishop at the helm. Bishop arrived late in the restaurant-and-bar trade; he's a veteran of the oil business who took over Noche a few years ago. Quiet, competent and always ready with a quick smile, Harry could double for a slim Saint Nick. And he obviously loves the hard work as much as the heady friendships -- nobody is a stranger for long at Noche. Under his guidance, this restaurant and bar is mellowing with a dignified grace. Harry wouldn't have it any other way.
