Baraonda, less than a block from the Fox Theater, is a guaranteed good meal before or after a show.
Again, if you are going to dine near the Fox, be aware that some of the establishments offer an "event" menu that is higher priced than their normal menu.
If you're going to park near the Fox, be prepared to be price gouged with their "event" parking rates.
Herban Fix is only a couple blocks away and is the finest Vegan restaurant in all Atlanta!
If you arrive early, you may be able to find street parking $8 for 4h. I arrived at 6.50pm for 7.30pm show and got lucky. Otherwise, the special event parking was $25 and $30
Don't use Goldstar if you and your date want to sit together. We picked up tickets at box office and found they weren't together. Give me a break.
Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker
I wore You will find all manner of dress at the Fox but it is such a lovely theater that you just might take this opportunity and dress up a little!.
Parking near the theater is 20-30 dollars, may as well park across the street at the historic Georgian Hotel, this event was 20$ and was easy in and out
On nice weather days dine on the terrace across the street at the Georgian Terrace, Livingston Restaurant. They have a wonderful Sunday Brunch and the mimosas were just what we needed prior to the show!
Parking near the Fox is generally $20-30, so if you're not willing to pay that much, be prepared to park further out.
The weather was sunny and warm for November. I wore jeans and a long sleeve tee, dressed up with accessories..
Walk a couple of blocks up from the Fox and eat at Escorpion! Very reasonably priced, great service, yummy food.
I'm new to ATL and this was my first play at the Fox - PS Beautiful facility. However, if you attend this event or any other event at the FOX, avoid the side doors that the ushers have open. I thought the door would lead me to steps inside the building,instead, the doors lead you outside to the sides of the building. Once outside, then you have to walk about 1.5 blocks to get to the front of the Fox again. Also, no restrooms when you go out this way. What's the point of paying $25 to park across the street from the FOX when the ushers send you to exits at the back/side of the building. Definitely not fair to seniors who paid to park closer so they wouldn't have to walk this distance or maneuver the steep steps. Luckily it had stopped raining when the play ended. Definitely the walk would be worse in the rain or winter.

Anthony Bourdain: Close to the Bone
We ate at a little Italian Restaurant a block down from The FOX. We arrived at the restaurant around 5:15, perfect timing.
We parked in the metered spaces on W Peachtree. The meter takes credit cards. Only $8 for 4 hours vs $20 for the area lots
The weather was cold. I wore Formals with a long jacket.
