Any new/closed restos by the Sheraton downtown?

Will be there for a meeting late Feb. Usually like to go for supper not in the hotel. Anything within close walking distance (probably going to be cold).
More casual, not overly formal.l

      None of these restaurants are new, but they're all quite close to the Sheraton.

      Nota Bene is less than 2 blocks west of the Sheraton on Queen. Nota Bene is upscale, but I'd still consider it somewhat casual. There is a hierarchy of waitstaff, and someone will refill your water glass, and remove crumbs from the table between courses, but there's a burger on the dinner menu. Nota Bene uses cloth napkins, but there are no cloth tablecloths on the table, and some people in the dining room will probably be wearing jeans. It's possible to eat in the lounge area (closest to the street ) which is somewhat more casual than the dining room.

      Babur and Trimurti are 2 casual Indian restaurants located 3 or 4 blocks west of the Sheraton.

      Rodney's by Bay serves great seafood in a casual atmosphere, and is within a 5-7 minute walk of the Sheraton.

      Yuzu (for Japanese) and Khao San Road (for Thai), are within a 10 minute walk of the Sheraton.

      265 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M5V1Z4, CA

          You're looking for a restaurant that's closed?

              Haha I thought the same too; OP probably meant "close" restaurants.

            Point of reference might have been better. Stupid me! Last time I was in that area was two years ago. That's why I was wondering if anything has shockingly closed. LOL
