Ted's Bulletin

'This Capitol Hill diner (on Barracks Row near Eastern Market) is a clever nod to a bygone era. Owners Mark and Ty Neal--also behind D.C.'s Matchbox restaurants--named the joint after their father, a West Virginian who was the unofficial "cook of the neighborhood." The old-timey throwback feels like the real deal here; art deco details, like carved marble door frames and metal air vents, are salvaged from the Philadelphia Civic Center circa 1928. Tables--salvaged former doors--are set with folded dish rags and a newspaper-like menu that features comfort food classics such as milkshakes, meatloaf and grilled cheese with tomato soup. Breakfast items such as short stack pancakes and home-made pop tarts are served all day. '- Lauren Sloat at Citysearch

"Such a fun place. I felt like I was in the old days and ordered the grilled cheese with tomato soup. For desert I had a vanilla milkshake. Everything was great and the atmosphere couldn't have been beat."

"The food is always good, but on this visit the restaurant ran out of fish. I had to change my order twice in order to find something that was on the menu. This location is much smaller than the 14th Street location. We were also seated near the kitchen so there was so much traffic walking backing and forth by our table.
My thoughts on Ted's Bulletin, get their early if you want the salmon before they run out and try not to get seated near the kitchen. The food is good! Try to the popcorn shrimp for the appetizer and you have to get the homemade pop tarts for dessert.

"Unfortunately this place no longer does reservations on the weekends, which was a huge disappointment. The wait can be unbelievable! But it's delicious comfort foods with a twist, at a great price. I love the brunch and that they provide you your own carafe of coffee. I keep coming back here over and over, I just come much earlier in the mornings than other places so I don't have to wait as long."

"Rather you have an adult milkshake or a homemade poptarr or both you'll enjoy every sip and bite. The menu is great and the portions of this oversized comfort food are just right and more."
