For some Company Member favorites, try these places:

From Jp:

Bonn Place Brewing – No food, but best beer in town!

Goosey Gander – Great meat, creative sandwiches, Tony’s personality!

U&Tea – Really excellent Chinese food with an incredible amount of variety. Strongly recommend going with a group and eating family style – there’s so much on the menu that’s worth trying.

From Lisa:

Mister Lee’s Noodles – Tasty, large bowls of ramen and fancy, fun cocktails. Get anything on the menu, though, because its all delicious!

Olive Branch – Delicious babaganoush and everything, plus Sam is the best.

Tulum – Enormous “Beth-Mex” burritos – just be aware that seating inside is limited.

From Bill:

Granny McCarthy’s Tea Room – It’s where half the Touchstone apprentices have worked over the years, and great food, ambiance. Support them!

La Lupita – Affordable, authentic, and delicious Mexican cuisine. La Lupita is a quaint BYOB restaurant across from Molly’s. The food is always great as well as the service. Perfect for an affordable after-show bite.

From Mary:

Molinari’s – Just around the corner from Touchstone and some of the best Italian food (and wine) around!

Nawab – GREAT Indian restaurant run by a GREAT family – and easy to walk to Touchstone for a show.

From Christopher:

General Zapata – Great for takeout, and they also have a small dining-in area. Nice folks, and friends of the theater. Check out the beef tacos… Perfecto!

Molly’s Irish Pub – Great happy hour specials, fresh beer, good burgers, and downright respectable fish & chips.

From Sam:

Cafe The Lodge – Breakfast and lunch with an enchanting outdoor dining area with a koi pond!

Social Still – A charming place for cocktails and munchies, ranging from small plates to full meals. Come back for a tour of the distillery as well!

From Kiera:

ShangWei Szechuan – If you like that Szechuan-style heat, this place has what you re looking for!

Thai Kitchen – HUGE portions! Everything is fresh and delicious. Vegetarian menu has great options and can be veganized.

From Matt:

The Flying V – Simply the best poutine south of the border! They have a great selection for all different tastes and dietary restrictions and everything can be customized to your liking.

The Bookstore – Definitely if you are in the mood to treat yourself and finish the night with some flair. This restaurant models itself after a Prohibition Era speakeasy. American fusion food, with 1920s ambiance and drink list that are amazing. Go there Friday or Saturday night to enjoy live music.
