Parking is limited in the area - street parking only. When I drive I park 3+ blocks away in residential areas.

La Méditerranée about 10 blocks away - park between the venue and the restaurant - if you do that you get free parking rather than the meters by the restaurant!

The Elmwood has several good restaurants within walking distance of the theater. Parking can be a bit tricky so plan accordingly.

The show is 2.5 hours long so take that into account when making reservations for dinner.
