Pre-Theater Eats

It's a common question this time of year: Where to eat before seeing a show? Here's a list of recommended restaurants with pre-theater deals by closest theaters. Many of these restaurants could work for numerous theaters, but I bet you're smart enough to figure that out.

• Arena Stage
Restaurant: 701 (cab or drive; there's nothing worth eating in walking distance)
Deal: Three courses for $25.95 (good selection)

• Ford's Theatre
Restaurant: Bistro d'Oc
Deal: Three courses and a glass of California wine for $21.95 (limited selection)

• Kennedy Center
Restaurant: Marcel's
Deal: Three courses for $48, which includes car service to the Kennedy Center. You can also hitch a ride back and have dessert after the show. (good selection)

Restaurant: Notti Bianche
Deal: Three courses for $35 (limited selection)

• National Theatre
Restaurant: Les Halles
Deal: Two courses for $17.89 (limited selection)

• Shakespeare Theatre

What a useful list, nicely done! I particularly like the Cafe Atlantico deal--only three choice per course, but you get some good ones there.

Chef Geoff, right across from Warner, has a great pre-theater option

I tried the Tosca pre-theater before seeing Les Mis the other night — it's really an amazing deal with lots to choose from ...maybe 7-9 choices for each course. You don't feel like they're just offering you the easy-to-make, cheap stuff. I had to try the butternut squash strudel for dessert because I was curious, and it was really good. Sweet and crunchy with apples and raisins.
