Wheelchair accessible special occasion restaurant?
Looking for a nice restaurant to celebrate a birthday with easy access via wheelchair. My mom broke her ankle and will only attend if she can be assured there will be no curb to navigate and a seating area without stairs. Maybe valet with a flat sidewalk, or a garage with an elevator?
Restaurant needs to accommodate a group of 8. Anywhere in the city of Seattle or on the Eastside is fine. I was thinking maybe Il Terrazzo Carmine, but can't remember if there's a ramp or just the stairs off the alley.
Il Terrazzo Carmine
411 1st Ave S, Seattle, WA 98104
I just read about how the building where Chez Shea is in installed an elevator so it can be wheelchair accessible. You can try there.
Or, how about Palisade? I seem to recall there being steps but also a ramp to get into the restaurant and into the dining room. Same goes for Ray's (downstairs).
94 Pike St. Suite 34, Seattle, WA 98101
How special and are you looking for a particular kind of food? Isn't every business built or remodeled with the last several (10? 20?) years required to be accessible? I guess I'd make a list of the places the birthday person would most like to go, then start calling around about access, while inquiring here about those particular places.
re: babette feasts
babette speaks well, grasshopper - from personal experience, i can tell you that there are few public accomodations that are not accessible but that they DO exist - so choose a place that you'd enjoy and call them to verify. if memory serves, il terrazzo carmine is fully accessible.
