Meeting a friend for an early dinner in Great Neck brought me to Shiraz. It is located in a small shopping center in what is considered “The Old Village” of Great Neck. Parking is in a paved, parking lot behind the building. I believe there are three handicapped spaces. Parking back here means walking through the middle of the center, the equivalent of about half a block, to the restaurant’s entrance. If you want someone to be closer, drop off him/her off on Middle Neck Road, then go around back and park.
Street-level, double doors led me into this lovely venue. Tile on the floor, tables and chairs arranged so that there is easy navigation between tables, lovely window coverings, chandeliers, and artwork, all serve to make this a very inviting place.
Once we were seated, our server presented us with a variety of dishes, including hummus, pita, olives and pickles, to nibble while we surveyed the extensive menu. Asking questions presented no problem, as he was gracious about everything. Decisions made, we had time to “catch up” about our lives. Conversation was easy because none of the tables are close together. Our dinner choices were excellent, the portions quite large. I had enough left over for dinner the next night!
Three single-occupancy restrooms are in a hallway behind the dining room. One of them is handicapped-accessible, and has a baby-changing station.
As always, we at Destination Accessible advise you to check a venue’s website, http://www.shirazgn.com, when planning a visit , to “know before you go.”
