The KC Cafe on the Terrace level is a great place for good food before the performance, though it get crowded an hour before curtain time. A little pricey, but good.

The roof terrace restaurant is really just an overpriced cafeteria. The food isn’t great considering the price you pay and you have to juggle it all on a tray. There are so many great places to eat in DC at varying price points and a wide range of choices, eat first

The weather was Perfect! A little cool, but hey, it's almost November.. I wore An evening jacket and unusual black pants; what one should wear when going to the KenCen in the evening. When the man next to me to pick up tickets said, "Little Shop of Horrors" I wanted to ask if that's where he shops. So many people look like they just got finished mowing the lawn or taking a nap on the sofa and headed off to the show. I wish there could be a dress code, but it IS nice that people pay to go out to a nice evening of culture, or just entertainment. What can ya' do?.
