Michael's Pizza is just a block away and there's a Thai restaurant across the street.
Take public transit. The Sheridan stop on the Red Line is only a 5 minute walk to the theater, and parking in that area is not fun.
Ate at the Thai restaurant across the street. Tasty, affordable food and friendly service.
late Sat & Sun afternoons, I found free street parking less than a block away
Street parking is scarce (we went on Friday night) but eventually found free street parking about 3 blocks away.
Free parking up and down Broadway or west on Sheridan. A pay lot is located one block east of the theatre on Clarendon.
If you go, expect being treated poorly. Leave about 30 minutes just for parking. It's far away from the building and is also hard to find. My advice, go elsewhere - there are plenty of small theaters that actually want you to come.
Go to Spritz Burger at Broadway and Grace. Great gourmet burgers and sandwiches, special dishes and good vegetarian plates too
Siam Noodle and Rice 4654 N. Sheridan Road. Great Thai-reasonable priced. BYOB too. A quick 5 minute ride to theater
No food on site, just a few beer selections and warm Rex Goliath Cabernet and Yellow Tail Pinot Grigio to take into the theatre ($5) which a shame because there is a wine store across the street at Buena that has a good selection. I expect better than grocery store wine. Bleh. Lots of restaurants along Broadway south of the theatre which works great if taking the 36 CTA Broadway bus.
36 CTA Broadway bus drops you off at the door or you can walk a couple of blocks from the Sheridan Red Line station.
The weather was fall crisp. . I wore a sweater, boots and a lighter down puffy coat.
Not much in the area appeals to me, best bet is too eat elsewhere near the Red line.
