Looking for a wheelchair accessible restaurant for Thanksgiving near 72nd and York

Hoping for quality but really any suggestions or recommendations are welcomed. We really do need to be near York and 72nd as one family member is recovering and in a wheelchair and does not want to go too far from his facility.

  1. Hospoda on 73rd between first and second is certainly accessible. I haven't been since a recent menu revamp, but in days past, it was a warm and welcoming Czech-American comfort food place. in the bohemian national hall, but not a 'cafeteria' by any means. more banquet room without the sterility. can't vouch that they'd be open on thanksgiving, but it *seems* like a place that would have special holiday menu.

      Thanks. It looks like a great place but unfortunately not open on Thanksgiving. We will definitely try it on a non holiday.

    2. take a look at a great new app- AXS Map- it was started by someone who,is wheelchair bound. Type in a location or category ( restaurants, stores, museums, erc) in Manhattan and it will give you all of the restaurants in your area that are wheelchair accessible. don't trust sites like Menupages for this info. A lot of restaurants will say that they are "wheelchair friendly" a term that is meaningless- and often means that there are steps that require someone carry your wheelchair down or that the bathroom won't accommodate a wheelchair.

        Thank you for this as well. It is so helpful to have this kind of information for both the short term and possibly long term needs. As soon as I can I will download the app.
