The owners of a New York restaurant which featured heavily in hit comedy Seinfeld are facing a lawsuit over the venue's wheelchair access.

Wheelchair-user Carolyn Coleman accuses bosses of Tom's Restaurant of failing to comply with the Americans with Disabilities act.

She reveals she would like to eat at the restaurant because "it’s near my doctors", but she can't because "there’s no way I can get inside or manoeuvre."

She is demanding more than $30,000 (£17,600) and a pledge from owners of the eatery - the setting of Monk's Cafe in the sitcom - to improve access for the disabled, according to

Restaurant manager, Manuel Papas, tells the New York Post, "We no have access for handicapped, but we have tables outside, though, that they can use. It’s not a problem in the summertime."
