What a way to celebrate their 35th anniversary next year: Joe Fortes, downtown Vancouver's legendary seafood and chophouse, has announced they are expanding to add a second location - this one in Whistler.
Joe Fortes Whistler will feature menu favourites that diners from their Vancouver location will recognize, such as fresh Ocean Wise-certified seafood and steaks.
The restaurant is moving into the space vacated by Trattoria di Umberto, which served as a more casual sibling to their Il Caminetto, and had been open for over 30 years. Trattoria di Umberto had been undergoing renovations for the last two years, but they ultimately opted to sell the restaurant and move on.
Joe Fortes says they plan to open in mid- to late- January 2020, and are currently in the hiring process.
Joe Fortes Whistler will be located at 4417 Sundial Place.
