Birthday Brunch for 90-year old

Indy 67 | Mar 3, 2009 06:05 AM

I know there's an active thread about brunch places, but none of the suggestions seem quite right for our upcoming event. My family will be going out for brunch to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday. Since she is wheel chair bound and my 92-year old father is quite frail, our primary requirement is accessability.

Our next requirement is making the dining experience easy and pleasant, which means no buffets or, at best, buffet starters combined with a served entree. (Bonus points for a place where waiters will assist us in bringing buffet food to the table for the elderly guests of which there may be three or four.)

The final requirement is that the food taste good. Although the choices can include some degree of innovation or fusion cuisine, our crowd won't be comfortable at a place offering exclusively ethnic cuisine like Cafe Atlantico.

Hotel brunch recommendations will not be rejected even though they're not the typical Chowhound haunt.

ETA: We have no price restrictions. (It's not that we're indifferent to price, but we have other criteria which will have to take priority.) Our group will be 15-20 people.
