Fort Lauderdale near convention center

I will be attending a conference in June and need to find a good restaurant for 10 people. Ethnic is ok, entrees $18 and under, and preferably within walking distance of the convention center and nearby hotels. I have seen other topics about Fort Lauderdale, but none specific to that area.

  1. There is a good Thai place down the street called Coco's Asian Bistro which has really good Thai food -- and its around that price range. Alternatively there is Bravo's Italian which is just across the street and about a block west of the convention center.

    1. $18 range is tough in that area unless you are willing to go very casual. If so, Kelley's Landing is close and serves great NE style seafood. Southport Raw Bar is next door for casual seafood too. If you are willing to spend more than $18 I would recommend Valentino's for very good Italian, Bistro Mezzaluna and 3030 Ocean which are all in the area.

      1. Bouncing this request to the top....I will be there in June as well, need a rec for a Sunday eve 8 pm-ish dinner, in the same Convention area, not all wil have cars.
