We often eat at the Kennedy Center cafe before the show. Good food, reasonably priced.

KenCen has free shuttle buses to Foggy Bottom, but on the night I went, *none* were waiting after the show and there was a long line for them. The line for taxis was even longer, and there weren't taxis lined up for people. I would think taxi companies would know when the shows let out and would send cabs there to pick up easy fares.

The Kennedy Center is a great venue. However, parking is expensive--$22--but enclosed, so inclement weather isn't an issue. And, if you are not familiar with that area, signage to the Kennedy Center is horrible. Don't miss the beginning of the show because you are driving around trying to find the one street that takes you there!

If you're dining at the KC Cafe, get there early; the tables fill-up fast. Also, if you're 2 people at a 4-top perhaps be willing to share with that person you see scanning desperately for an open table.

Or, add your own...Sunday Brunch at the Roof Terrace before the matinee is always a good choice.

The weather was cold outside steamy inside. I wore leave your coat in the car and dress in layers so you can remove them. just too hot!.

You cannot take any food and drink into the theater except bottled water so it's best to eat before you see the show.

The shuttle bus leaves the Foggy Bottom Metro station every 15 minutes so it's easy to get to by Public Transport. If you drive you can park in the garage at the Kennedy Center but it is expensive or you can park on the streets which might be hard to find and have to walk. I suggest metro!

We lunched at Blue Duck Tavern, quick, close, easy street parking, and just delicious.
