Ottawa, near Byward Market - great food wanted

My husband will be working in Ottawa next week, staying near the Byward Market. Price and type of food unimportant, he just wants something really great. This could mean a great dive bar, a fun pub, steak house, sushi ... whatever is the very best within walking distance. Any info greatly appreciated.
on recommendation of users on this board, i went to sweetgrass aboriginal bistro. i had a wonderful meal - the food was delicious, well prepared and creative. the service was attentive but not overwhelming. things were served in a timely manner by a very capable server.
Talented chef...regional cuisine focus since a long time before it became popular.
PLay Food...a small plates restaurant. I haven't eaten there, but it's from the guy who owns Beckta, which is one of Ottawa's best restaurants.
This is all fantastic and helpful information. I'll insist he have a glass of wine for each of you. Thanks so much.
Agree with other posters: PLAY, Sweetgrass and Domus.
Also worthy trying are Navarra and Murray Street both on Murray Street.
