Restaurant Guide

compiled by Kit Gordon

All of these places are within walking distance; I've estimated distances based on actual walking around with my pedometer. Some construction makes the trek to Olive Garden and Chili's, which are about a half-mile away, a bit more challenging, but sidewalks do exist and most that I checked have curb cuts for anyone with some mobility challenges.
