If you're going to get an alcoholic drink at intermission either get a souvenir cup (to take it into the show with you) or use the pre-order feature, otherwise you may be chugging it to finish in time.

We went on a Wednesday. There was a farmers market at the Foggy Bottom metro. We got the paella and enjoyed it at a nearby bench since the weather was nice.

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
