About the Author

John Bil

JOHN BIL (1968-2018) worked with fish — on the water, behind the counter, and in the kitchen — for over twenty-five years. Bil began his career shucking oysters at the Toronto dining institution Rodney’s Oyster House, before venturing east to the Maritimes, where he spent over a decade working in the shellfish and fish farming industry, and later opened his first restaurant, Ship to Shore, in Darnley, Prince Edward Island. A respected and in-demand seafood expert, Bil assisted with the openings of several other high-profile restaurants, including M. Wells Steakhouse (New York), Claddagh Oyster House (Charlottetown, PEI), Restaurant Joe Beef (Montreal), and most recently, his own Honest Weight (Toronto).
