Grabbing dinner before curtain call at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard, 314-535-1700) just got a lot more fun.

Beginning Sunday, October 13, Grand Tavern by David Burke (626 North Grand Boulevard, 314-405-3399), located inside in the Angad Arts Hotel in Grand Center will host themed dining experiences inspired by the fourteen shows in the 2019-2020 season.

Themed around shows like Rent, Wicked and Jersey Boys, the season kicks off with Hello, Dolly!, for which Grand Tavern will serve a menu featuring a Waldorf salad, choice of chicken fricassee pot pie or roast beef with béarnaise and an opera cake to finish.

“We received great feedback around the launch of our pre-theater offering in the spring and wanted to find a way to build on that excitement and incorporate a unique element to make it that much more special for local theater-goers,” said executive chef Robert Cantu in a recent release. “These performances allow guests to step out of their reality and into those of each performer, so we have curated theatrical menus to make our guests feel like they are a part of the performance. Each menu is unique and carries a special connection to the show.”

Here's the complete lineup for the 2019-2020 season, including run dates:

  • Hello, Dolly! Tuesday, October 1 through Sunday, October 13
