Chef Geoff's is just around the corner from National Theater and has great food, but make sure to make a reservation, it fills up fast before and after a show.

Remember, this is a very high level, WORK IN PROGRESS. We were told, "it would be very different, when it finally opens. It would be great to be offered, free tickets in comparable seats when it finally opens in March!Share anything else here. Just start typing...

If you go outside immediately after the show, you can get the cast to sign your Playbill. They were very patient and very friendly, especially James Snyder.

Chef Geoff's (around the corner from National) is always a good meal.

Brunch at the Occidental before the 2 pm matinee works well. A special treat!

Take the metro to Metro Center. It's super close and parking is a pain anyway (but there are parking decks nearby and some street parking).

The weather was cold. I wore slacks/turtleneck/vest; there was a draft in the theater especially on our legs..

3 Parking lots were full; I found parking on the street and paid for the first hour since we got there before 6:30 pm -- I got a ticket because I didn't display my receipt on my dashboard which I didn't know about.

We had a quick dinner at Chef Geoff's. We made reservations for 5:45 pm online. Service and food were good.

Parking downtown is a drag. Pretty cheap garage at 660 11th -- a couple blocks from the theater.

Make a reservation ahead of time, if you're looking to eat. Every place we tried was packed.

Theatergoers: PLEASE resist the urge to eat during the performance. Contrary to what you may think, rustling around in the candy bag CAN be heard by everyone around you.

If you get there early enough for dinner, walk up the street to District Taco. Very yummy and affordable, even had vegetarian options for me!
