Orlando Table and Orlando Market will host a rotating lineup of some of
Central Florida’s top chefs and culinary creations
With a focus on providing fresh new flavors and a proud local flair, Amway Center will debut two dining destinations – Orlando Table and Orlando Market - at tonight’s Orlando Magic vs. Los Angeles Lakers game. These locations will feature delectable food from some of Orlando’s hidden gems along with unique concoctions from more established restaurants. Both spaces share one essential ingredient: variety. Every few weeks, the arena’s local dining partners will be swapped out to showcase popular offerings from other emerging chefs and restaurants.
Orlando Table, located by section 114 on the Terrace Level, will plate, pour and serve up dynamic hospitality celebrating the best of Orlando. Bao’s Castle, a locally-owned restaurant serving fine dining in small bites, will open the space and treat guests to their specialization, bao buns.
Orlando Market, on the opposite side of the Terrace Level by section 104, takes its inspiration from food halls where multiple different kitchens offer their fare side-by-side. From fanfare to street food, this destination features notable food trucks and locally-based establishments that embrace Orlando’s diverse communities. The Escobar Kitchen, serving freshly-made sushi rolls fusing together the tastes of Latin and Asian cuisines, and 4 Rivers Smokehouse, a wildly-popular family-owned restaurant specializing in 30-day aged smoked brisket, are the first two partners to inhabit Orlando Market.
"Orlando has evolved into an innovative culinary destination with distinct creations, so integrating a rotating lineup of buzzworthy local restaurants and food trucks among Amway Center’s dining options allows us to celebrate and share these unique flavors with our guests" said Orlando Venues Chief Venues Officer Allen Johnson. “We're pleased to team up with Levy, the arena’s food and beverage partner, as theycontinue to serve up bold new tastes that enhance the fan experience.”
By design, Orlando Table and Orlando Market will foster local food exploration and introduce new audiences to many of Orlando’s up-and-coming players on the food and beverage scene. In the weeks and months ahead, these two dining destinations will feature Aku Aku Tiki Bar, The 808, Chickpeas Fresh Mediterranean Kitchen and Le Femme du Fromage, among others.
