Llloyd's Restaurant is just across the street from the opera house, and they feature a nice menu with a variety of offerings at very reasonable prices, with good service and a pleasant atmosphere.

Use the SpotHero app to reserve a spot in the parking garage in the building next to the Lyric. Was inexpensive and we were in and out quickly.

Absolutely loved it! Took my husband who has never been to the opera (even though he works in the Civic Opera House building). This was so cleverly written and performed highly recommend this show.

So much fun! Pretty cool to sit on stage and look back out at the Lyric's house. This is more Second City than Opera, but still enjoyable anyway!
