Sony Open: Best Eats and Drinks

Before you watch tennis, grab a bite and a drink.

Play began at the Sony Open Monday, March 18, but everything really heats up this weekend. The tournament continues through March 31, and many tennis fans double up on day and evening sessions. That makes for a long day of tennis and some hungry people.

Thankfully, the Crandon Park Tennis Center is its own village, filled with shops, restaurants, and bars. That means you can start the day with a latte, have a burger for lunch, and enjoy some sushi and champagne for dinner -- all without leaving the facility.

Each year, 125,000 meals are served over the course of the two-week competition. The tournament's culinary program employs 410 people and encompasses eight bars, four concessions stands, five fast-casual eateries, four full-service restaurants, a hospitality terrace, 26 stadium suites, two private dining rooms, and a players' lounge and dining room.

That's a lot of food and work for a temporary event!

From grab-and-go food to sit-down meals, the Sony Open has dozens of places to eat and drink. Here's a list of our favorites:

Veuve Clicquot Champagne and Sushi Lounge 
Enjoy champagne and freshly rolled sushi at the lounge. California rolls ($10), vegetable rolls ($10), and JB rolls ($12) are light fare to be paired with ice-cold bubbly. Veuve Cliquot Yellow is served by the glass ($20) or bottle ($110). Want something more colorful? Try the rosé by the glass ($23) or bottle ($125).

Starbucks
Starbucks? Heck yeah! At some point during the long day, you'll need a caffeine fix. Get it here. Lattes, iced coffees -- all the standard Starbucks drinks are available.

Ben & Jerry's
We love Ben & Jerry's, especially when it's 80 degrees and sunny. Waffle cones and cups in all of B&J's wacky, lovable flavors are available (but our heart still belongs to Cherry Garcia).

Bombay Sapphire Lounge
The Sapphire Ace Collins ($11.25) is the signature cocktail of the tournament, and you can get it at this lounge, along with jumbo Gulf shrimp cocktail paired with horseradish cocktail sauce and sliced

lemons ($13.50).

Corona Beach House
A Key West joint in the middle of Key Biscayne? We'll go with that. Corona in cans ($6.25) or on draft ($8.75) pair well with tortilla chips served with salsa fresca and guacamole ($7).
