Joe Fortes has been a Vancouver staple since it opened in 1985, and it’s still as charming as it’s always been. It’s a three-storey restaurant with a lot of chandeliers, servers wearing ties, and the occasional piano player, and while you can dress up to go here, you’ll also see people in jean shorts who have just gone shopping on Robson St. Their rooftop, which is only open during the summer, is the best spot in the house and worth waiting for a seat. Go for Happy Hour - just make sure you get there early to get in line - or head downstairs and enjoy things like lobster rolls, seafood towers, and prawn cocktails while you watch their staff shuck oysters a lot faster than you’ll ever be able to.
