We had a 6:15pm reservations at RoseBud Prime Chicago, 1 S. Dearborn. The waiter asked us if we had theatre plans as soon as we were seated. He assured us we would out in plenty of time for our15 min walk (2 blocks) to the Goodman. The dinner/drinks/conversation/services was fantastic. We arrive a few mins early to the performance.

I prepaid for the GC lot. its the best option unless you can take public transportation, or are willing to circle downtown looking for a spot.

Jason's Deli across the street is an inexpensive dining alternative.

I suggest a long sleeve shirt or sweater/shawl - the upstairs lobby was chilly & this carried over into the seating area.

Parking is expensive even with theater ticket validation. Check Spothero or ParkWhiz instead.

Before going to any Loop Theater, try dining at the Tortoise Club at the foot of Marina Towers on State Street. We we happy to find $1.00 shrimp and $1.00 oysters during their week day happy hour which ends at 6:30 pm and free valet parking while you're dining and at the show. The pork chop was really good, too.

Parking is available, but we took public transportation.
Petterino's is right there but the Q's went to Catch 35 - many options near the theater.

It is so easily accessed via the Brown or Red Line. Parking though discounted still runs around $15.
