Orlando: Dinner for 10 Ladies Near World Center Marriott

sarahinthecity Mar 12, 2013 08:54 AM

I'm looking for a great place for 10 women to have dinner near the World Center Marriott in Orlando. One guest is gluten-free, but flexible. I'm looking for somewhere unique with top notch food, service, and atmosphere. No chains, please. Any ideas?

    Well, I guess it's between Siro in the World Center, La Luce, and Funky Monkey. Doesn't seem there are too many options in the area.

        No, just taxis. But no one wants to go too far.

        You're pretty stuck then, as the Marriott is surrounded by chain restaurants and other hotels. So yes on Siro and La Luce, also Bull & Bear, but Funky Monkey is not that close. You could do a Disney hotel restaurant like Jiko at the Animal Kingdom Lodge or Flying Fish at the BoardWalk.

          People seem to love the Venetian Room in that area too - tho it is very pricey and old school. The food is supposed to be great. http://www.thevenetianroom.com/

          If I were you I'd do La Luce
