My sister was visiting from North Carolina, so the three of us wanted to go to a nice restaurant for dinner in Huntington Village before seeing Tab Hunter being interviewed at the Huntington Arts Cinema.(yes Virginia, he’s still alive). Restaurant Joanina is located at 35 Gerard street and unlike most places in the Village, there is a parking lot in front. The lot has 1 designated handicapped van accessible spot. The brick sidewalk is 1 step up from the paved lot, but the walkway is even with the lot at the side of the building.
After entering through the double doors, we were very impressed with the interior of the restaurant. It has a true Tuscan feel. There is a huge floral arrangement in the center of the room and there is beautiful china on the tables. The wait staff is very friendly and willing to explain the items on the menu. A prix fixe menu was offered that evening, but we found out later that it was Restaurant Week and that menu might not be available at other times. We had a lovely dinner and could pretend for a little while that we were in Italy.
The restaurant has a flat tiled floor and the tables and chairs are nicely spaced allowing for easy maneuverability. There is a single occupancy restroom with handrails at the rear of the dining area.
There is a bar area at the front of the restaurant which has a couple of booths and tables.
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, www.restaurantjoanina.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
