There is dining within the opera house, but only if you have a ticket for the performance. I wish i'd had known there was that possibility. Instead we ate in the suburbs and constantly watched the clock and traffic reports worrying about being late. Dining in would have been much more relaxing.

The lot below chase was very accomodating, and reasonably priced, but there were multiple issues with the elevators on our way back to the car. For those with special needs, it might be wiser to valet.

Park using SpotHero app was super easy! We parked in the lot for $8! Download it and it takes 5 mins to see all the deals and lots around.

Valet is $20 which is alittle expensive for a 70 minute performance. So I went on spothero.com and found parking across the street for $10 and pre paid for it.

We ate lunch before at 1 North Kitchen & Bar directly across the street from the Lyric. Convenient and good service.

If you are dining pre-show, try somewhere other than One North. Although extraordinarily convenient, the service was poor, the food average and the noise level was bothersome and inhibited conversation.
