Area Dining

When coming to a show, we hope you will visit one of the many fine restaurants in the area before or after the performance. There is a wide variety of restaurants within a few blocks of the theatre providing a choice for every palate and every budget

The Bagel Restaurant and Deli
The Bagel Restaurant and Deli, a New York style deli in the Jewish tradition, offers a casual dining option for North Shore Center patrons. This place is for you if you have a yen for chopped liver, smoked whitefish salad, blintzes, brisket, corned beef, potato pancakes, cheesecake or chocolate phosphate. And yes, they do have bagels — about 10 varieties.
