My mom is celebrating her 90th birthday next month and we want to take her out for a celebratory dinner. I've narrowed the choice of restaurant down to two (though happy to consider other places) based on the following criteria: 1. location (not too far from Chelsea, where she lives); 2. cost (under $100 per person; 3. food (mom likes Asian a lot, though this is not a must) 4. ambiance/fun factor (festive but not insanely loud; both Spice Market and Hurricane Club sound entertaining, upscale but not overly formal).
But there are a couple of factors that I'd like your help with, given that I live in another state and cannot check out the physical set-up of these restaurants personally.
1. Stairs or other physical obstacles: Mom needs a cane or walker to get around. She can handle a few stairs, but walking up a whole flight of stairs won't work. Ease of getting in and out of the restaurant would be a big plus.
2. Comfort for a party of ten on a Saturday evening. It has to be on a Saturday. We are happy to eat as early as 5 pm.
3. Special treatment: we don't need any, really, but if either place is especially solicitous of birthdays, that would be nice.
Thanks for any insight.
