A fun and quirky Washington, DC Restaurant

Inside Ted's Bulletin
Every now and then we stumble upon a restaurant that has a great ambience and great food. Thanks to our friend Gretchen who lives in Washington, D.C. we found one. Gretchen asked us to meet her for breakfast at "Ted's Bulletin" restaurant this past weekend and we didn't know what to expect. 
  I saw that they had homemade poptarts on the menu, and I (Rob) have PopTarts every day for breakfast, so I had to try them. They were outstanding! 
Where its located
The "lobby" of the restaurant

   Gretchen told us that the decor came from an old convention center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania that was being torn down. That included the ceiling tiles, the hanging lights, and marble wall pieces. There are only 80 seats in the restaurant, so there will likely be a wait... but it's worth it.

REVIEW:  Recipe Sleuth: Creamed Corn at Ted’s Bulletin  
By Rachel Tepper Published Wednesday, June 23, 2010
Ted’s Bulletin, the recently opened Capitol Hill restaurant from the minds at Matchbox, serves up a menu filled with June Cleaver classics. The boozy milkshakes and house-made Pop Tarts steal most of the attention, but for one reader, it’s all about the creamed corn. This Eastern Market eatery
 sports a menu of old-school favorites—sloppy joes, spaghetti and meatballs, grilled cheese, giant twice-baked stuffed potatoes—and no-fuss classic cocktails

 EASTERN MARKET-    We followed up  breakfast with a walk through all of the outdoor vendors at nearby Eastern Market (which is east of the Capitol Building).


Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
