Orlando’s culinary scene continues to expand with more than a dozen new, high-profile dining establishments arriving in the destination in recent years. While meeting-goers can easily find popular restaurants and famed steakhouses and seafood outlets, they’ll also be able to enjoy unique, local experiences curated by celebrity chefs in Orlando, which was selected as a “Best Foodie City” by WalletHub.
A popular group venue is Disney Springs™, which serves up 60-plus crowd-pleasing dining and entertainment venues — including the highest concentration of celebrity chefs in the Orlando area — as well as more than 100 eclectic retailers, and continues to expand. Disney Springs’ celebrity restaurants include José Andrés’ JALEO, Masaharu Morimoto’s Morimoto Asia, Rick Bayless’ Frontera Cocina, Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill, Art Smith’s Homecomin’ Florida Kitchen, Guy Fieri at Chicken Guy! and Planet Hollywood, and Tony Mantuano’s Terralina Crafted Italian, plus George Miliotes’ Wine Bar George — the only wine bar and restaurant headed by a master sommelier.
At the nearby Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort, Todd English’s bluezoo provides more celebrity dining. And closer to the Orange County Convention Center, your group can enjoy the creations of Roy Yamaguchi’s Roy’s Restaurant and Primo by Melissa Kelly.
A wide range of eateries can also be found at Universal CityWalk, Pointe Orlando and ICON Park, including many nationally famous options. Just minutes away by car, Orlando’s Restaurant Row is a must-visit for anyone who loves a great meal.
