DIN­NER AND A SHOW

Where Philadelphia - - Where Now - BY JES­SICA TZIKAS

See­ing a great show can work up an ap­petite. Af­ter see­ing per­for­mances at these the­aters, we know the per­fect place to sat­isfy your hunger. The Ar­den Theater: High Street on Mar­ket Just like the Ar­den The­atre, High Street on Mar­ket is a fa­vorite for lo­cals and vis­i­tors from around the globe. If you’re head­ing to the theater with the fam­ily, opt for the fam­ily-style din­ing and choose four ap­pe­tiz­ers, two pas­tas and one en­trée. If you’re on a date, order the duck egg car­bonara and bur­rata to share—you won’t be dis­ap­pointed. 308 Mar­ket St., 215.625.0988 The­atre Ex­ile: Fond The­atre Ex­iles’ shows can be so per­sonal, they leave vis­i­tors with a feel­ing of be­long­ing. Fond does this too with their New Amer­i­can menu and cozy din­ing room. Start the meal with home­made breads and con­tinue with items like skate wing and pork belly. Add a bot­tle of wine and you may never want to leave. 1537 S. 11th St., 215.551.5000 EgoPo: Brick and Mor­tar EgoPo prides them­selves on be­ing a “classic theater on the edge.” The same can be said for Brick and Mor­tar, a ca­sual yet re­fined spot serv­ing ev­ery­thing from a lob­ster corn dog to cen­ter cut pork chop. 315 N. 12th St., 215.923.1596 Lan­tern Theater Com­pany: Mo­ri­moto Lan­tern Theater en­cour­ages the au­di­ence to par­tic­i­pate and feel in­cluded in their acts. The Iron Chef does the same at his name­sake restau­rant, Mo­ri­moto. Get the kusuri, a cocktail pre­pared ta­ble­side fol­lowed by the Mo­ri­moto Omakase, a chef’s choice din­ner, for a true din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. 723 Chest­nut St., 215.413.9070 Plays & Play­ers Theater: Pump­kin Plays and Play­ers Theater re­cently cel­e­brated 100 years of theater, and while Pump­kin, who just passed 12 years, may seem dim in com­par­i­son, the cui­sine feels as though it’s been there for cen­turies. The BYOB is full of lo­cal, sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents with a chang­ing menu that al­ways stays fresh. 1713 South St., 215.545.4448
