Edmonton near Coast Plaza
Is there a good mid-priced restaurant or two within walking distance (or v short taxi/bus ride) of the Coast Plaza hotel? OK with any kind of cuisine, but prefer prices for mains to be $26 or less.
There are 2 Coast hotel locations in Edmonton and they're both downtown, so you're located near lots of the more recommended restaurants. If you do a search for Edmonton or downtown Edmonton you should find some good suggestions.
The only thing is that with the current weather, you might not be as inclined to walk quite as far as you would in the spring or summer.
I would like the names of about 2 close restaurants as it is so cold (am at the 105th St and Jasper location). I don't have a car and I'm not inclined to go far at night as I don't have a vehicle. A search won't help me much in terms of proximity without more research than I want to do. I have no idea of the geography of Edmonton.
I hear you. I was there 2 weeks ago and we nearly froze walking back to our hotel 5 blocks from lunch!
Have you tried asking the concierge at the hotel?
I don't remember names (other than the Blue Plate Diner, which we drove past) but we stayed at 101 St and 105 Ave. and there is a Thai restaurant you could walk to easily, also a little plaza we ate at that had several lunch-type places most of them chains.
The geography is easy, the streets and avenues are all numbered ( Jasper is 99th or 100 Ave. I think) so you can tell how to get from here to there. It's the cold that gets you. The rapid transit/subway is right there though.
There is a great panini place on 104st just north of Jasper ave called Free Press Bistro. Good sandwiches and home-made fries/chips. Very reasonable prices. They are also part of the downtown dining week
