I am at a loss...

I am staying tonight at the Delta Chelsea, and need to find a decent place within walking distance for someone who is not very mobile. I walk with a cane so distance is the issue rather than price. Can anyone suggest something in close vacinity to the Delta -- 33 Gerrard Street West.

    I really enjoy Adega, which is just by Elm Street. I think it's mostly Portugese cuisine? Anyway, there are some safe bets though, in case anyone is a bit picky.

      There are a couple of places of note on Elm Street, which you can access from the back exit of the Delta Chelsea. Barberians is great old school streak house.

        Barberian's is also on Elm. Classic, old-school steakhouse with fantastic wine list.

        Oro is also quite reputable (although I can't vouch firsthand).

          As a bonus, Barberian's is also barrier free. No stairs to deal with IIRC.

            I second Oro, I've had a couple great meals there and my friends like it too.

            If you're looking for something a bit more casual, Devil's Advocate on Bay is nearby. Nothing spectacular... your typical pub grub, but it is close to the hotel.

              I don't think I can say anything about this place tactfully, so let it suffice to say I think I'd rather hit up the Wolf & Firkin on Elm or even the Elephant & Castle if I was after uninspired pub fare. (sorry.)

                The Devil's Advocate went out of business about a month ago. I won't miss it.

              Thanks for the suggestions, it will make it easier to grab some food withough falling again by walking too far.

                Check out Red and White mediterranean on Yonge St, just north of Elm. They're open late and serve a very good chicken shawarma plate with chick pea salad. Doner Kebab across the street is also pretty good for a quick bite.

                My aching foot thanks you all for your suggestions. I took the easy way and just got the shawarma, one of my neices got a slice and her mom got the donair. Brought it back to the room with an Ice cold soda and now I have my foot on a pillow. I have a wonky ankle anyways but took a nasty tumble earlier this morning and can hardly walk again.

                  Sounds like the shawarma hit the spot. Rest up and speedy recovery to you smr714.
