Eating options in downtown Kingston

Yesterday I had to go to downtown Kingston on business and decided to explore some of the eating options that exist.  What I found were mostly branches of national and international fast food chains.   These fast food chains clearly reflect the demographics of the people who frequent the area.  From low income residents to civil servants, shop employees and street vendors.  Until downtown Kingston is significantly redeveloped, those who are looking for fine dining options will have to remain uptown.
