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.

  1. 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.

    33 Elm Street, Toronto, ON M5G 1H1, CA

    1. 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.

        1. 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.

            2. 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.
