Master Chef is the restaurant that has replaced a string of nine restaurants at this location. It has been rebuilt and transformed into a visually dazzling venue with attentive staff and interesting dishes.
We arrived after dark, but it was not possible to miss it with all of the lights. I cannot tell how many handicapped spaces there are because there was valet parking. In its last incarnation, I believe there were four handicapped spaces. There is a concrete ramp to the left, and five stone steps to the right of the multi-door entrance. Stepping inside, to the large, beautiful lobby, you will find rugs on the floor just inside the entrance doors, covering part of the marble floor. The decor extends throughout the restaurant, the booths and tables have adequate space between them, the upholstered chairs and booths are exquisite, the china is lovely, napkin rings and place settings make one feel as if he/she is in a royal residence. Both dining rooms have thick carpet underfoot, which may be an issue for wheelchair navigation.
We had made a reservation for our party of four and our table was waiting when we arrived. The website says that they have, “… diverse food destinations, offering a wide variety of different choices. You can simply select your choices,,, and watch the chef create your fresh and succulent dish right before your eyes” We did not do this, as we were intrigued by some of the interesting dishes on the menu. We decided to try some of them and perhaps let the chef create for us next time. Our server was polite and attentive. One of the really nice touches is warmed tea cups, keeping our tea a bit warmer for a bit longer! Our shared appetizers were all good, and everyone enjoyed his/her choice of entree.
Multi-stall restrooms (not handicapped-accessible) are located down a full flight of steps. But, not to worry, a large, single-occupancy, handicapped-accessible restroom is located on the main level. It is to the left of the lobby at the end of the dining room, past the full-height bar on your right.
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to visit a venue’s website, www.masterchefcc.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
