Soco Thornton Park
629 E Central Blvd, Orlando, 407-849-1800
Obviously, this restaurant is located in Thornton Park, which by itself is a cute neighborhood in the middle of Downtown. That being said, their outdoor patio has some pretty sweet vibes, and enjoying good food while you’re at it could be a good option for a night out.

Ferg Depot
78 W Church St, Orlando, 407-367-2952
This restaurant housed in a former train station is pretty damn cool all in itself. The various original buildings house different dining halls, but if you want to eat outside, their courtyard or outdoor Oyster bar is the place to be.
