Walking near Sheraton Back Bay

Asking for suggestions for group of 5-6 near as possible to Sheraton (Prudential). Good but not super fancy (Brasserie Jo seemed best option on Open Table) but also open to local/ethnic/not-on-Open Table.

Thanks in advance.

    1. Summer Shack is very close if you like seafood.

      1. Brasserie Jo is a good choice. Atlantic Fish on Boylston is good.

        1. Brasserie Jo is very good.

          La Voile on Newbury is pretty good too.

          Chilli Duck on Boylston across from the Pru is decent Thai

          Coda and Salty Pig are good suggestions, too

          There is a 5 Napkin Burger in the Pru but Ive not been

          1. Thanks everyone for suggestions.

            We ended up at Brasserie Jo.

            Warm baguette in a bag with soft butter always a winning start.

            The steak frites was OK but frites were neither as hot nor as crispy or interesting as I would have hoped given the reputation.

            Creme brulee was plain but good; crepe was enormous but/and hit the spot for everybody.

            Service was quite good.

            Thanks again, folks.
