Is accessibility important to you?
NOW labels a restaurant barrier-free if it has at least one entry where there are no steps, its tables are reasonably spaced and the washrooms are located on the same floor. That does not mean, however, that the venue is necessarily equipped with assistance. Here are five of our favourites that provide fully accessible dining.
