No food on site, just a few beer selections and warm Rex Goliath Cabernet and Yellow Tail Pinot Grigio to take into the theatre ($5) which a shame because there is a wine store across the street at Buena that has a good selection. I expect better than grocery store wine. Bleh. Lots of restaurants along Broadway south of the theatre which works great if taking the 36 CTA Broadway bus.
