The stage lights are shining again at the Saenger Theatre in New Orleans. Since the curtain last fell, the local dining scene has changed dramatically. As you eye the upcoming season of theater, comedy and music, make plans to explore as well the city’s restaurant scene.
While the new Saenger Theatre offers parking, there are options for those who prefer to let others drive.

900 City Park Ave., New Orleans, 504.488.1000
2700 Metairie Road, Metairie, 504.934.4700
The duo of Ralph Brennan restaurants has gone beyond the pre-show meal to offer a full theater package. At both locations, there will be a $35 three-course dinner designed to delay the theaterbound no more than an hour. For an additional $20, a shuttle departs for the Saenger 45 minutes before showtime. A special Showstopper cocktail also will be available. It’s served in a go-cup, so you can drink it on the shuttle. Reservations for the shuttle must be made 24 hours in advance. The service starts Oct. 15 with the run of “The Book of Mormon.”
