We had tickets for “South Pacific” at the Merrick Theater and wanted a place not too far from the theater for dinner. We thought that our choice would be just around the corner. Turned out we were wrong! Although not very far (3/10 of a mile), if walking is a problem or the weather is not great, I would opt for parking near the restaurant and then moving the car to the large parking area near the theater (see listing for Merrick Theater).
Although we walked, we checked out the available parking. There is a town lot behind the restaurant as well as one across the street. We found five handicapped spaces, four of which are van-accessible. There also seems to be plenty of timed street parking (read the signs). If you park in the lot you still have to walk around to the front entrance.
A distinctive, royal blue canvas entryway makes this street level entrance easy to see. A single door led us to the large waiting area (benches and chairs) which seemed to be nice for the many people picking up their “take-out” orders.
Since we were there early and the restaurant was not crowded I thought that the very brisk take-out business was a testament to the quality of the food. After our dinner I knew I was correct.
We found Santorini quite spacious, with tile floor, many large booths as well as well-spaced tables and chairs, nice for both navigation and conversation. Subtle, blue lighting and artwork reminiscent of the Greek Isle of Santorini made for a lovely atmosphere.
Our server was pleasant and efficient. The Greek salads that accompanied our entrees were quite good, including the “more interesting than usual” salad dressing.
Single-occupancy, handicapped-accessible restrooms are located in a wide hallway toward the rear emergency exit. There are no baby-changing stations.
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, http://www.santorininy.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
