Inquire at the hotel as to the (Oops) Central West end district which is accessible by the metro or taxi ride, it is small but dense in numbers of good options to choose from. It is a popular location with the locals in an area to the western edge of the city proper. You will have a few recommended spots from the hotel peeps to try. I am brain farting the name of the chef(French guy) that is a bit noted in cooking lore on the national level(tv shows) with his record and he has a place down by the river walking distance from most of the hotels. The Hill district for Italian is to the south of it by about a mile or two, that is in relation to the CWE area of town, not downtown. My bad.
