With that in mind, this post is an overview of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which provides guidelines (actually, hard and fast rules) for how restauranteurs should accommodate guest's using wheelchairs, to make sure they can enjoy your hospitality in comfort.

Nostalgic Restaurant Concept: The Supper Club

  “Supper” is a word that evokes a different time in American history, a distinctly old-world term that implies something more formal, more serious than “dinner”.
