The Staff at this Restaurant Only Communicate With Sign Language

Finding restaurants that are accessible to people with disabilities can be extremely frustrating. Some are devoid of wheelchair ramps and some deny access to assistance dogs. In any event, one North American eatery has made itself into a home away from home for the hearing impaired.

Toronto's appropriately named Signs is staffed exclusively with hearing impaired individuals and, thus, sign language is the norm when it comes to ordering and communicating. However, the eatery is not just for the hearing impaired. Each table is outfitted with a sign language "cheat book" that offers relevant information to the layman.

What kind of food is on offer at Signs? Everything from chicken salad to braised rabbit. It opens to the public on July 16th.
