Nashville restaurants make changes to become ADA compliant

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The U.S. Attorney’s Office has announced it found problems at 16 of Nashville’s most popular restaurants.

For nearly a year and a half, federal investigators have reviewed local restaurants to see if they were compliant with federal guidelines under the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Among other issues, inspectors found parking and accessibility problems to entrances.

A spokesperson said all 16 restaurants have made efforts to fix what can be real challenges for people with disabilities.

The Channel 4 I-Team called several of the restaurants included in the review.

The owner of Etch told the I-Team he was asked to make coat hooks more accessible, as well as to clear space in the restroom.

At Cafe Nonna, the owner said he designated a restroom for handicapped patrons, placed a mirror in the restroom, and is working to re-pour a concrete ramp outside.

The owner of Margot Cafe said she displayed new signs for the handicapped restroom and changed the toilets to make the flush handle more accessible for all guests.
