When you have tickets, whether they're for an NBA game, a rock concert or even a big-name convention, it's nice to know you have dining options nearby. When it comes to eats around Orlando's state-of-the-art Amway Center, there's nothing to worry about. Choice restaurants abound and most venues on this 10Best list are well within walking distance. (And if you're wearing heels or it's raining, a cab will get you there in minutes. Literally.) If a romantic dinner is your pre- or post-show intent, look into tapas, sangria and maybe even a little flamenco at the atmospheric Ceviche. Looking to grab something quick and fresh in stylish surrounds? Check out the Bento Cafe for an array of Pan-Asian offerings in slick digs. How about a cold pint and some friendly banter over a soccer game? The Harp and Celt is tops for either (and they serve a nice Irish breakfast to boot). Other excellent options include the stylish Kres, which is a top-shelf steakhouse but pours a lovely cocktail if you're hitting them up for happy hour before heading to the arena, Shin, for fresh sushi in an elegant and business-friendly space and the Rusty Spoon for gastropub-style cuisine and farm-to-table sensibilities to satisfy local-vores with ease.
