There are many pubs, restaurants and bars near the venue location. We ate at Beretta's, a cool, hip and urban atmosphere. The wait was calculated to be an hour so we chose to eat outside at the bistro tables where they had heaters setup. It wasn't extremely cold, so it was tolerable. The food was average, nothing to write home about, mostly italian.
