Food Truck Vinyl Wrap Fort Lauderdale Florida

Finding lunch at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show has always been a hit and miss affair in the past for guests and exhibitors alike but this year, new initiatives mean that attendees will have more dining options than ever before.

Internally the show’s International Food Garden located at the Bahia Mar show location have in the past been the only option. High prices floppy paper plates the need to scrum down and fight for a seat at a table all colluded together to diminish the hunger of anyone walking the docks.

So for those who don’t want to take the risk, of getting covered in your neighbours chop suey here is some good news

The latest culinary enhancement is the addition of a new, full-service pop-up restaurant, Hugh’s Café at the Hall of Fame Marina, operated by Hugh’s Culinary. Styled as high-end sit-down bistro, the café will be located at the Hall of Fame Marina show location and feature an à la carte menu, tapas style food and full course lunches. Open to the public, the concept is designed to offer another quality dining option for guests and a place for industry professionals to meet and conduct business.

Pier 66 Marina, the show’s newest location, to reopen soon following a total marina renovation, will offer attractive dining options, including Pelican Landing restaurant for casual dockside dining and drinks, and fine cuisine at the upscale Grille 66 & Bar. Pier 66 also offers pool-side dining at Orchids Pool Bar.

The Hilton Marina location features several dining options including Nanking, offering Asian-fusion dishes; The G casual waterside dining located directly adjacent to the hotel’s 33-slip inlet marina; and the Waterway Room featuring breakfast service with waterway views.

If you are thirsty and can find a seat at one of the show’s famous floating cocktail lounges, they offer the best spots to people-watch, grab a cold drink and recharge while enjoying live musical entertainment.

All show locations are connected by a convenient land and water transportation network offering several parking and transportation options to get show-goers to the Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel & Yachting Center, the Hall of Fame Marina, Las Olas Municipal Marina, Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina, Sails Marina, Pier 66 Marina and the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center.
