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.

Lots of restaurants along Broadway south of the theatre which works great if taking the 36 CTA Broadway bus.The Cryptogram dining • Nov 10 2014 star this tip starred

If I didn't have smoke aversion and nowhere to escape once the show had begun, I would have rated it higher.
