It’s a night at the Kennedy Center, so why not go all out and have dinner there, too? While the food at the Roof Terrace isn’t spectacular, the rooftop restaurant will be jam-packed before showtime and it’s a fun way to mingle with people you’re getting ready to enjoy a show with. Sit in the bar area, which is covered in velvet and will remind you of a Kennedy Center where people didn’t show up in jeans and sneakers. The rest of the restaurant kind of looks like a high school cafeteria, except here it's full of septuagenarians on double dates. Grab cocktails before the show to add a little zhuzh to your evening.
