Signs Restaurant opens soon

A unique new restaurant opens in downtown Toronto July 23. Signs Restaurant says it is Canada’s first restaurant mostly staffed by deaf servers. The restaurant offers "upper casual dining" and it's  slogan is “where noise meets silence.” Customer will be asked to order in sign language. A book illustrating how to sign menu items will be available. The owner is Anjan Manikumar who learned ASL after watching deaf customers visit restaurants where he worked. Signs will have a hearing hostess greet guests and explain the set up. Check out the restaurant's Facebook page here. Below is a video about the restaurant.
