Ted's Bulletin is a real American classic joint with a bit of style - complete with savory homemade food and a friendly neighborhood atmosphere. The fare, though unabashedly familiar, is just like mom used to make but gussied up. Takes on grilled cheese, homemade pop tarts, meatloaf, and country fried steak are sure to please. Breakfast is served daily beginning at 7am. Guests can also check out our homemade pastry case with scrumptious pies, cakes, muffins, and other throw backs like oatmeal cream pies. Bulletin features its very own shaketender and barista, ready to whip up custom milkshakes - with or without alcohol and coffee favorites. Have a classic cocktail made the old fashioned way or your favorite sipping liquor served over one cube from the Macallan Ice Baller.

"...nothing meriting all the buzz. Admittedly, I'm gluten intolerant, which limited my options. The shrimp and chicken brochettes couldn't be sauced. Adequate, but nothing more. My wife enjoyed the fried chicken, though. And the smoked chicken I had on a previous visit was quite good. Overall, it's like a diner version of Clyde's, which is likely to take a hit in Town Center with the arrival of Ted's."

nopa Kitchen + Bar, a new 160 seat American brasserie in the heart of the Penn Quarter. This is the award-winning restaurateur's eighth restaurant in the nation's capitol and it serves American fare with French and Asian influences. The restaurant offers lively dining in the main dining room, and also offers quieter dining options and several private dining rooms. The name represents nopa's location just north of Pennsylvania Avenue and it welcomes guests for lunch and dinner, and Sunday brunch. Our newly launched brunch is served from 11am-3pm on Sunday, order a la carte or partake in our Champagne Brunch- any two courses with infinite mimosas for $30!

"I was in the mood for vegetables, so I gave the "panache" a try and was really pleased I did. cubed, perfectly cooked root vegetable, long beans, spinach, and black quinoa was doused with a sweet/sour broth that was just plain delicious. Best vegetarian dish I have ever had. Dessert, too, was wonderful...a grapefruit mousse topped with grapefruit sctions, then a graperfruit foam. I can't eat wheat, but the dozed tiny madeleines resting in honey sent the table into swoons."

The Fainting Goat is a genuine neighborhood tavern in a sophisticated atmosphere with funky chandeliers, cozy banquettes, and a laid back atmosphere. Our dishes are inspired by modern American cuisine with subtle notes of whimsy, made with only the freshest ingredients available locally whenever possible. The Fainting Goat serves as a meeting place for locals, whether it be for the happy hour specials, a laid back date, or late night drinks with friends.

"Some whine about this bistro on Yelp, but we gave it a try and were happy we did. It was Happy Hour, so wine, beer and Tito's vodka cocktails were $5. We had a selection of cheeses and charcuterie to begin, the highlights of which included finocchio with an anise edge,and a very moist, young hay-smoked provolone (all were good, though), plus roasted leeks on a sauce of buttermilk and lemon with pickled red onion and microgreens. Mains: a roast chicken with bread crumbs atop nicely cooked kale and the bird's juices. A smear of pate made a great counterpoint. Also goat with a red wine sauce on charred eggplant. with roasted parsnips and steamed baby turnips and potatoes The dish was very good if too dominated by the sauce. Still enjoyed it."
