I ate at Jenny's At the Wharf and would definitely go back. Very reasonable prices and delicious Chinese and Thai dishes. It is a little tricky to find with all the construction but it is only a 2 minute walk from the theater.

Street parking is available if you're willing to look for it. The show is 90 minutes and the maximum for many parking spots is 2 hours.

Parked on the street at one of the DC meters (honestly, could they possibly have more consistent kinds of meters, times, payment methods, etc.). After getting a parking ticket the last time I used my iPhone App to pay (forgot to put in my boyfriend's license plate rather than mine which is the default), was careful to use his this time. But, $7.20 for an on-street parking space after 6:30 pm, give me a break. D.C., don't you want people braving the traffic to come into town and patronize evening entertainment, restaurants, etc.? Guess they just don't care.

Had a decent meal in the Catwalk Cafe before the performance. But paper plates and plastic silverware (an oxymoron), give me a break. We patrons deserve better.

Ate at Station4DC. Food is great; very noisy, but we ate outside, which was great.

Parking in the venue's lot was $20, or $25 for valet. The angling at exit was tricky. There is street parking; get there early and be ready to walk at least a few blocks.

Parking in the $11 garage was close by and easy to find.

You can order prix-fix dinner online ahead of time, or order a la carte, buffet style. The food is mediocre. -- And, please, don't show up high or drunk for the show. It's still a show, not a late-night rave.

There is a parking garage on site. Careful with on-street parking, the meter-maids blitz the area routinely.

Stations 4 is a nice restaurant within walking distance. They have a special offer for theater goers which includes parking. Check it out.
