Washington Post food critic Tom Sietsema already gives readers details about a restaurant’s noise level, hours, prices, and of course, what’s on the menu. Now he’ll also add accessibility information to that list as well. In a post yesterday, Sietsema explained that readers with disabilities often contact him to ask about restaurants’ accommodations for people using wheelchairs, or blind people. He writes that while he initially had concerns about the viability of remaining under-the-radar while inspecting doorways with a tape measure, “the facts outweigh the cons.”

One in four American adults has a disability that significantly affects major life events, whether related to hearing, vision, cognition, or mobility. A recent Washington City Paper feature outlined the state of restaurant accessibility in the city—finding accommodations and hospitality vary widely—encouraged Sietsema to add this information in his reviews.

Hats off to Sietsema, who will not only do his readers a service but may also encourage restaurants to examine their own accommodations for customers with disabilities. Highlighting restaurants that do a good job in this important realm—and yes, noting those that don’t—will hopefully increase the number of restaurants available to customers regardless of disability.
