Where to eat when you see “Moving Boxes”

The Evanston area is awash with places to eat, but most close before you’ll get out of Saturday evening shows of Moving Boxes (night shows end at roughly 9:30), so we advise you to eat before the Saturday shows. If you’re coming to a Sunday matinée, plenty of places will be open after the show, which starts at 3:30 and ends at roughly 5:30.

We’ve put together a recommended restaurant list to help, just click here. All of these are favorites of ours. Dave’s New Italian Kitchen, for example, is the latest creation of owner Dave Glatt who has been a mainstay of the Evanston dining scene since the 1970s. The pizza you’ll see on-stage in Moving Boxes comes from Dave’s.

The Celtic Knot is Evanston’s Irish pub, the place we go every St. Patrick’s Day. It’s in downtown Evanston, only a short drive from our theater. Bluestone is just east of us on Central Street and has a nice mix of pub fare and some items you might not expect in such a friendly neighborhood watering hole.

The Ridgeville Grill in neighboring Wilmette has transformed itself in recent years to feature the latest in culinary options while Dengeo’s in neighboring Skokie is the place for fast casual Greek fare, ribs, burgers and a lot more.

All of these choices so are supporters of the 2nd Act Players, so we encourage you to mention us while dining there.
