If you thought the idea of accessibility was lost in our city's Greektown, than you have not been to the newly opened The Forth. This multi-level, modern space offers contemporary Canadian food and cocktails with a special interest in accommodating everyone. Owner and chef, Chris Kalisperas, knew from the beginning that to be welcoming, he needed his restaurant to be completely barrier-free. This becomes glaringly apparent as soon as you enter.

The front entrance of the Forth is unobstructed and offers a automatic door opener on the right. The two large doors each measure 35 inches. Once inside, there is a large elevator that allows access to the second and third floor dining areas. The floors are all smooth and one level. Although the space can fit double the amount of tables, the seating is left relatively minimal to increase privacy and maneuverability between tables. All tables are of a 29 inch standard height.

The toilet facilities are located on the third floor along a 42 inch hallway. There are automatic door openers inside and outside. One accessible stall is featured in each room: 36 inch door, 2 grab bars, changing table, 75x75 inch total area. The sinks are all 26 inches from the floor and automatic dryers are available.

When planning to visit The Forth, the newly accessible Pape subway station is across the street. There is also an outdoor paid parking lot just north of Danforth Ave. on Pape St.

The Forth is closed Monday and Tuesdays, serving dinner Wednesday-Sunday. The Forth is also open Sunday afternoons for brunch. Large groups and private events are definitely welcome.
