Disabled diner

Now I have really done it. I fell and broke several bones, including me knee and leg, so I am in a wheelcnair for at least tnree months. I enjoy fine dining, but am finding it difficult to find restaurants that can accomadate disahlities.
Sure, they may have a handicapped ramp - but you get seated in the dead zone. I also cannot wear shoes for a month or so, but I do wear socks, and the health department tells me that is ok. The waitperson often treats me as if I must not be able to afford the place/tip well, etc - even though I dress as before the accident. I often dine alone, it seems to be betterr when I am with a group. Does anyone know of a place that is especialy accomadating to disabled diners. I like all knids of food, and differet price ranges. Thanks!
