Patio season is well underway in Vancouver. But have you ever considered enjoying the city view from a rooftop patio in downtown Vancouver? If not, give Joe Fortes on Thurlow, just off of Robson, a chance. I attended their patio kickoff recently, and they had great food from seafood and chicken tacos, oysters on the half shell, and other varieties of seafood. In addition they have a bar on the rooftop patio, so enjoy a glass of wine, or a glass of sparkling wine, beer, or other drink along with the great food. Below are a few pictures of the event to entice you. I was sipping Segura Viduas Reserva Cava, Spanish sparkling. It goes very well with seafood. Enjoy the summer!
