As we move into Step 3 of BC’s Restart Plan, we can’t help but feel a mix of emotions — excitement, relief, gratitude & optimism. For the last 16 months, we have dealt with countless difficult challenges, but through it all we have made sure to maintain incredibly high safety and service standards.

Please rest assured the decisions we make with our own restart plan will be made with the utmost care, and in accordance with the province of British Columbia’s recommendations. Our goal is to gradually transition back to the Joe Fortes you have all come to know and love for over 35 years. With that in mind we have implemented the following changes, effective today for lunch service.

1. Guests are no longer required to wear masks. Guests who wish to continue to wear a mask are encouraged to do so.
2. Plexiglass barriers will remain in place indoors until further notice.
3. Regular menus (with more options!) will be back in place but we will have QR codes available for those who are not comfortable with paper menus. 

We will continue to update you as more changes occur in the following weeks. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding!
