Best pre-theater dining near Studio Theatre

In addition to its top-notch productions of cutting-edge contemporary theater, the Studio Theatre is in a great neighborhood for dining out. Here are some of our favorites in the area.
 
 

Studio Theatre

1501 14th St. NW, Washington, DC 20005  | 202-332-3300  |  Web site »

Birch & Barley and ChurchKey

1337 14th St. NW, Washington, DC 20005  | 202-567-2576  |  Web site »

The thoughtful American cuisine and amazing desserts are a great way to get ready for the show. The amazing beer list is a great way to unwind afterward.

Stoney's Bar & Grill

1433 P St. NW, Washington, DC 20005  | 202-234-1818

Sometimes you don't need to accompany your evening at the theater with haute cuisine. Sometimes a simple grilled cheese will do, and Stoney's delivers.

Rice Restaurant

1608 14th St. NW, Washington, DC 20009  | 202-234-2400  |  Web site »

The lounge-y feel of the dining room and a menu that embraces traditional Thai and contemporary Asian dishes lend a sense of elegant cool to your evening.

Zentan at the Donovan House Hotel

1155 14th St. NW, Washington, DC 20005  | 202-379-4366  |  Web site »

A $39 prix fixe pre-theater menu features many of celebrity chef Susur Lee's most popular dishes (Singapore slaw, anyone?).

Estadio

1520 14th St. NW, Washington, DC 20005  | 202-319-1404  |  Web site »

Estadio can get very crowded, and no pre-theater diner wants to worry about a wait. But the Spanish dining scene isn't known to kick off early, so show up at 5 p.m. and you should have no trouble getting a chance to try Haidar Karoum's tortilla Espanol or Adam Bernbach's slushitos.

Hank's Oyster Bar

1624 Q St. NW, Washington, DC 20009  | 202-462-4265  |  Web site »

I look for any excuse to dig into one of Hank's wonderful lobster rolls.

Masa 14

1825 14th St. NW, Washington, DC 20009  | 202-328-1414  |  Web site »

Latin-Asian fusion small plates and a great selection of Mezcal make Masa 14 worth the walk from Studio.
