Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop should be a must-eat for any Celiacs visiting Vancouver, BC. Not only am I constantly impressed by the service (with a smile!) at Joe Fortes, the food is amazing too, with lots of gluten free options! Plus, any restaurant good enough for Anthony Bourdain (yes, he was at the table next to ours!), is a restaurant worth checking out!
Most recently, I went to Joe Fortes as a part of a bachelorette party. It’s my friend’s favourite restaurant, and they are able to cater wonderfully to her crazy allergies too – tomatoes, dairy, eggs, and more. For the bachelorette, we rented out the rooftop patio at the restaurant. Amazing! If you’re ever getting married in Vancouver, check out their beautiful rooftop garden area, just adjacent to the patio!
To top everything off, I received a handwritten note in the mail yesterday, from our server. Maybe they do that for everybody who fills out a comment card, or maybe it’s because I told Richard, our server, that I wrote a gluten free blog! Note: I only tell people this because I feel like they’ll be more careful to avoid cross-contamination, which I’m very paranoid about!

A fabulous night and a great restaurant with spectacular service, an allergy-aware kitchen, and a rich history in the city of Vancouver. Check out their website here, or go straight to the menus here!
