Where to eat in Waterbury???
I just scored tickets to the Leonard Cohen concert in Waterbury. YES!!!!. I tried desperately to get tickets for his NYC concert lasat week but he sold out in 14 minutes and tickets were going for up to $4000. on Ebay. Anyhow, the concert is at the Palace Theater. I know nothing about Waterbury. Is there a good place to eat within walking distance of the Palace? Is there a good place to eat period? Please help. Thanks in advance.
There is the City Hall Cafe about 2 blocks from the Palace. They've got a website. Check it out. It's a fairly nice restaurant. It will be loud because of the crowd before the show, but the food is good. Not too expensive. There is a parking garage (pay) right next to it and they have a small parking lot (free) too.
I haven't been to Diorio in years, either, but just spoke to an old Waterbury-native friend this month. She introduced it to me years ago. I asked if they still go and they do. Good food, reasonably priced, no-fuss parking, just park in the lot and walk in. It's a separate ride from the Palace, but worth the trip:
Diorio is another great choice.
