Looking for true “outdoor dining,” led us to The Bryant, an “urban-style restaurant, located next to Walt Whitman Mall.” (website) It was our first visit, but it won’t be our last. Although the inside of this 10,000 square foot venue is lovely, with “white tile walls, antique mirrors, beautiful woodwork, comfortable seating” (website), we are not ready to dine inside. If you are, there are well-spaced tables, booths, several high tables and a full-height bar (with plexiglass partitions) in the lounge area. We were told that there is a upgraded air-filtration systems, using MERV filters and a UV-C light purification system. Hand-sanitizer is available and all staff wore masks.  The two outdoor dining areas have well-spaced tables with tablecloths, and enough heat lamps to take the chill out of the air. Take note that you cannot make a reservation for outdoor dining. It is “first-come-first-served.”


We arrived for an early dinner so that we had the sun beaming down on us. Parking was easy in the large, paved, lot. There are three handicapped spaces near the street-level, single door entrance.  There is an entryway and then another door to the welcome desk. Even if you want to be seated outside, you have to enter and check-in here.


Touchless menus showed us a variety of interesting options. Our group ordered meatloaf, a tuna BLT (perfectly done), roast chicken, as well as a delicious hamburger. The one glitch in one of our orders was quickly and graciously corrected. Although a time-limit was clearly posted on the tables, we were never rushed. We were able to sit and chat with friends we had not seen in a very long time and enjoy every minute of it. It was an all around wonderful evening.


Multi-stall restrooms are located down a hallway behind the bar. The handicapped stall is one of the largest I have ever seen. Wonderful! Sinks are wheelchair-accessible. You will find a baby-changing station in there as well. The only downside is something we have encountered in other establishments. Extra chairs are piled up along one wall of the hallway, making it narrower than it should be. This might present a problem to someone with an electric or oversize wheelchair. I am hopeful that when venues are allowed to return to full capacity, these chairs are no longer there.


Our experience was lovely, We hope that yours will be too. As always, we at Destination:Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website, http://www.pollrestauratns.com">www.pollrestauratns.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
