Everything about the restaurant named after the president is designed in his style

The menu will feature simple dishes with an upscale twist.

Teddy and The Bully Bar opened on June 24 in Washington D.C. The restaurants’ concept is playing tribute to Theodore Roosevelt, one of history’s more popular presidents. The idea for the restaurant was born after the success of their sister restaurant, Lincoln.

The environment of the restaurant hopes to capture the essence of the president and provide some history. Across from the street is where Roosevelt once lived during his tenure as Assistant Secretary of the Navy.

The executive chef of the new spot is Michael Hartzer, and he plans to focus on a seasonal menu using local and quality ingredients. The style of the menu is shared plates. The menu will reflect Roosevelt’s love for simple foods, but the chef plans to serve traditional dishes in an upscale manner.

Roosevelt believed that “a biscuit should be served with every meal,” so there will be a bakery in the main dining rom. The menu will also feature game meat like bison and venison and a raw bar. Roosevelt’s favorite dish, fried chicken in white gravy, will be on the menu as well.

Accompanying the menu will be a cocktail program that reflects the era of Roosevelt. Mixologist John Hogon will create the program and plans to have the official cocktail of D.C., “The Rickey,” on tap.


Lincoln Creators Will Give Teddy Roosevelt The Presidential Treatment At New Restaurant

/>The Trust Buster, The Rough Rider, The Old Lion and The Meddler—all these titles were given to America’s 26 th President, the exuberant Theodore Roosevelt. However, the nickname Roosevelt was most commonly known by was Teddy, which will also be the name of the Lincoln's new sister restaurant, Teddy and The Bully Bar, scheduled to open in early 2013. The restaurant will be located at 1200 19 th Street, NW and will take shape under the direction of much celebrated local artist/interior designer Maggie O’Neill of O’Neill Studios. O’Neill’s design will pay homage to Roosevelt’s interests and love of the American West, as well as the Progressive Era as a whole.

The menu at Teddy and The Bully Bar will reflect Roosevelt’s love for simple foods with small plates featuring wild game such as bison, venison, rabbit and tender bbq Florida frog legs. Moreover, the cuisine at Teddy and The Bully Bar will be inspired by quality, locality and simplicity, values that come from Roosevelt’s belief to “do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”

Principal and Co-Founder of PRG Hospitality, the company responsible for Lincoln and the plans for Teddy and The Bully Bar, stated that the opening of Lincoln has led to a recognition of “how much communities embrace history and enjoy learning about Abraham Lincoln.” This is exactly what PRG hopes to do for Theodore Roosevelt with the creation of Teddy and the Bully Bar—pay tribute to another one of the nation’s most popular Presidents and create an environment in which people can enjoy fine dining and great company and gain an appreciation for historical figures and events.

Share All sharing options for: 5 Things to Know About Declaration, Opening in November

The team behind Lincoln and Teddy & the Bully Bar will open their third restaurant, Declaration, this November. Here are some new details:

*There will be 52 seats in the restaurant, and the focus is pizza.

*The 13 pizzas on the menu are supposed to represent the 13 original colonies of the U.S.

*Continuing the theme, the restaurant is 1,776 square feet (as in the year 1776).

*John Hogan is designing the bar menu, with several cocktails, draft beers, and a small wine list with 17 bottles, 7 reds by the glass and 6 white/sparkling wines.

*Though they're saving the details for closer to opening, designers Matt McMullen and Howard Connelly plan to work some nods to America's history into the design, like they did with Lincoln and Teddy & the Bully Bar.


8 Bars Mixing Up Mold-Breaking Mint Juleps

The mint julep may be most associated with the Kentucky Derby, but that doesn't mean you can't order one any other day of the year. The refreshing Southern cocktail, best enjoyed on a lazy summer day, isn’t anything fancy—it’s basically just crushed ice, a hefty pour of bourbon, muddled mint, and simple syrup—which makes it ripe for creative interpretations. And bars across the country are getting into the spirit with innovative twists on the traditional. In honor of this month's National Mint Julep Day, celebrated May 30, here are eight bars, both below and above the Mason Dixon line, mixing up mint juleps worth traveling for.

1. DOC CROW’S SOUTHERN SMOKEHOUSE & RAW BAR // LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY

If you’re based in bourbon-centric Louisville, and your downtown location is colloquially known as “Whiskey Row,” then you’re pretty much obligated to serve an out-of-this-world julep. Doc Crow’s, with its signature “Near Eastern Julep,” delivers and then some. Bartenders here start with plenty of crushed ice and Old Grand-Dad bottled-in-bond bourbon, add in ginger-infused simple syrup and Becherovka, an herbal bitter with a spicy-bittersweet twist, and substitute basil for the usual mint. Sip your poison at the bar, or grab a table with friends and pair it with a Southern specialty like shrimp and cheddar grits, Texas-style brisket, or fried pork chops.

2. PARLIAMENT // DALLAS

Creative cocktails are always on the menu at Parliament , but this beloved Dallas haunt loves to elevate their menu for special occasions. To celebrate the Derby this year, they rolled out five special Kentucky-inspired cocktails, including the Southern Belle, a revivifying riff on the traditional julep. Rhubarb sugar and strawberry-infused Maker's Mark bourbon combine with lots of mint for an extra-refreshing flavor—perfect for keeping cool in the Texas heat. (And on those rare occasions when the sun isn't shining, not to worry —Parliament offers happy hour deals not only from 5 to 8 p.m. daily, but any time it's raining outside!)

3. JULEP // HOUSTON, TEXAS

Meanwhile, down in Houston, bar proprietor Alba Huerta—the recipient of many awards and accolades for her inventive drinks—is such a fan of the classic cocktail that she named her establishment simply Julep. Designed to spotlight the best of Southern comfort food, you'll find plenty of fried oysters, pulled pork, and yes, mint juleps. Since it opened in 2014, Julep has spotlighted many versions of its namesake drink—like its headline-grabbing Sparkling Julep, made with Gamay bubbly, cognac, mint, and turbinado syrup—although its classic julep, with its blend of Four Roses and JW Dant bonded-in-bottle bourbons, plus turbinado to add a gentle hint of molasses-style sweetness, never goes out of style.

4. THE LEADBELLY // NEW YORK CITY

This heralded Lower East Side joint serves up oysters from both coasts, along with a selection of well-curated small plates, all the better to enjoy with a thirst-quenching julep. Leadbelly bartender Colin Asare-Appiah told Town & Country magazine he was inspired to give the bourbon-and-mint sipper a 21st-century makeover after reading up on the centuries-old drink. "Research showed me that there were gin, genever, and cognac varieties," he said. "Vodka has been the modern-day hero of the cocktail bar scene, and so I decided to use a well-crafted vodka and add fresh spearmint with cucumber." Can’t make it to NYC anytime soon? The recipe is available online so you can still try the invigorating vodka-cucumber concoction at home.

5. KINGFISH // NEW ORLEANS

Beloved fourth-generation bartender Chris McMillian , arguably the nation’s foremost julep maker , may no longer helm the bar at this French Quarter institution, but his legendary juleps live on in the more-than-ample hands of current lead bartender Justin Gerhmann. Bourbon and peaches are natural allies—peach brandy was often used as the base for juleps mixed in the 1800s—and the Kingfish version celebrates that delectable pairing by combining peach syrup with Maker’s Mark bourbon and mint.

6. BLUDSO’S BAR & QUE // LOS ANGELES

Located just a few blocks south of Santa Monica Boulevard, Bludso's Bar & Que caters to Angelenos with a taste for big Texas BBQ flavor. Recently earning the top spot in LA.Eater’s list of essential barbecue spots in the area, the family-owned restaurant is beloved for its authentic, slow-smoked ribs, brisket, chicken, and more. Naturally you'll need something to wash all that down with, and while Bludso's boasts plenty of craft beers and local wines, don't skip their juleps, which are pre-kegged and—quite delightfully— served on draft . The boozy treat is made with Evan Williams bourbon (a Louisville favorite) and, despite the unusual on-tap twist, is still served traditionally in a silver cup with heaps of crushed ice.

7. TEDDY & THE BULLY BAR // WASHINGTON, D.C.

This Dupont Circle tribute to our gallant 26th president claims to serve all that Roosevelt held dear, gastronomically speaking (think steaks, fried chicken, house-made cornbread, and, of course, wild-game dishes starring bison, boar, and venison). Their cocktail list, though, is where Teddy & the Bully Bar really shines, serving classic drinks inspired by “the golden era of American cocktails,” or roughly the period between the early 1800s right up to Prohibition. The chicly appointed interior, with its faux taxidermy, gas-powered light fixtures, and restored antique stove, is the perfect setting to sip on Teddy’s berry-licious julep, which combines Woodford mint-infused bourbon, fresh mint, and strawberry shrub.

8. FIG & OLIVE // CHICAGO

As its name suggests, Fig & Olive is best known for their Mediterranean cuisine and love of all things olive—they swap out butter for olive oil in nearly all their recipes—but their creativity doesn't end with food. Originally based in New York but now with eight locations across the country, this upscale dining experience features a plethora of classic cocktails with a decidedly modern twist. Their Chicago location features a Fig & Walnut Julep, which begins with Four Roses bourbon but then turns the usual julep recipe on its head. Elderflower liqueur, muddled black figs, citrus, and shaved-walnut garnish transform this front-porch-sipping Southern staple into a Mediterranean medley.


Shouldn't there be a paywall here?

Nope! We believe everyone in D.C. deserves access to quality local news. And fortunately our readers, readers just like you, agree! They've stepped up to support trustworthy reporting on the real D.C. and make sure City Paper remains free for everyone . Will you join them?

Lincoln Restaurant features a giant white penny-studded chair, a nod to the chair where Abraham Lincoln sits on the National Mall. This booth (unfinished in the photo above) will be Teddy & The Bully Bar’s equivalent. The wall will be covered up to the ceiling with glossy blue Venetian plaster and a quote from Roosevelt’s daughter, Alice Roosevelt Longworth, that reads, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, come sit next to me.”

The Big Stick Forest

The white woods in the private dining room are not just a statement about Roosevelt’s conservationism, but also his foreign policy approach, “speak softly, and carry a big stick.” “It really was meant to be this room of sticks,” O’Neill says. The initials of the owners’ kids and other people instrumental in the restaurant are carved into the trees.

Badge Chandelier

This light fixture in the back private dining room is designed to look like the badge Roosevelt wore as commissioner of the New York City police department, when he tried to rid the city of prostitution.

Rifle light fixtures

“Let’s be honest, Teddy was a little aggressive as a president. He was very much for expanding the United States territory and defending it,” Popovsky says. He quickly adds a politically correct disclaimer: “We certainly are not promoting guns in any capacity.”

Racy Restrooms

At first glance, the men’s restroom, which is designed to look like an outhouse, doesn’t seem so scandalous. But look closely at the forest wall paper, and you’ll notice some naughty behavior. The team did a photo shoot in Rock Creek Park with a Roosevelt lookalike and some scantily clad women. The women’s restroom has some sexy paintings printed on lace and lingerie. “Each stall is getting its own fantasy,” O’Neill says.


Teddy and The Bully Bar Opens in D.C. - Recipes


1200 19th Street, NW

“On Thursday, November 23 , Teddy & the Bully Bar will host a Thanksgiving meal for a total of 30 women from local charity N Street Village. Teddy & the Bully Bar, located at 1200 19 th St NW, Washington, DC 20036, will provide transportation for the 30 attendees, along with a Thanksgiving buffet featuring traditional dishes such as Leaping Waters Farm roasted turkey, buttermilk potatoes, challah stuffing, and more. The meal will take place from 10am-12pm in one of the restaurant’s private dining rooms prior to the restaurant opening to the public for their annual Thanksgiving dinner being served from 1pm-8pm.

“We are so excited and grateful that Teddy & the Bully Bar reached out to us wanting to host this event. We knew we wanted to do something for the women at our Phyllis Wheatley location and this opportunity couldn’t be more perfect. We’re excited and we think the women will be too,” says Associate Director of Corporate Partnerships and Volunteerism Heidi Gauthier.

N Street Village has been helping and empowering homeless and low-income women in Washington, D.C. since the 1970s. Since its founding over 40 years ago, N Street Village has grown to be the largest provider of housing and services for women experiencing homelessness in Washington DC, and a national model for effective solutions. In 2016, media mogul Oprah Winfrey pledged $1 million to the organization furthering their positive impact on the community. Most recently, N Street Village was chosen as one of The Washington Post’s 2017-2019 Helping Hand beneficiaries.

Recently it has been announced that some services will be relocating from their Logan Circle location to another facility due to the increase in property values in the area. During these times of change and uncertainty, Teddy & the Bully Bar hopes to provide a place for attendees to enjoy a holiday meal among friends and be able to relax, if even just for a few hours.

Of what Teddy & the Bully Bar hopes to accomplish with their Thanksgiving meal, Owner Alan Popovsky says, “We really just hope to provide a warm meal served with respect and compassion from our staff. If we do this perhaps we might give them more than just a meal but the hope and reassurance to continue their journey for a better quality of life.”

Commitment to philanthropic pursuits is nothing new for the PRG Hospitality restaurant. Whether it’s hosting a benefit event, like Uncork for a Cause, or donating space in the restaurant for a fundraising happy hour, Teddy & the Bully Bar is devoted to working with local organizations to help the community in any way they can.

“Community is at the heart of what we do. Doing events such as this is good for the organizations, good for the neighborhood, and good for the restaurant,” says Popovsky.


Teddy & The Bully Bar: D.C.'s New Presidential Destination Has Small Plates, Big Drinks And Fake Taxidermy (PHOTOS)

WASHINGTON -- Signature cocktails, small plates, wild game and faux taxidermy: that's how we honor Teddy Roosevelt.

Thanks to the success of Lincoln, another president-themed eatery is about to open in the nation's capital.

Take a sneak peak into Teddy & The Bully Bar

Located in Dupont Circle, Teddy & The Bully Bar features Rough Riders-inspired lighting fixtures, mounted animal skulls, paintings of the president by artist Maggie O'Neill and a rotating drink menu featuring themed cocktails like the Rough Rider Daiquiri and the Roosevelt Island Punch Bowl.

And if you'd like some oddball football with your presidential appreciation, the the 8400 square-foot restaurant features mugs, pots and jugs created by former Redskins tight end Chris Cooley. The decorative pieces are, sadly, not for sale.

Another Teddy touch: animal trophies. Teddy Roosevelt was, famously, a hunter. Paying tribute, kind of, Teddy & The Bully Bar's main dining room features (faux) taxidermy. The private dining rooms feature some actual animal skulls. A warthog, cape buffalo and scimitar oryx are on display. According to a sign in the room, the animals were not killed by humans, but were found and preserved as art pieces. We're not sure what Teddy would think of this.


DC’s Next Presidential Themed Restaurant Is Called Declaration

In one of those “only in Washington” moments, a new restaurant called Declaration is bound for Shaw. The 50-seat eatery comes from restaurateur Alan G. Popovsky, who’s also behind presidentially-themed spots Lincoln and Teddy & the Bully Bar.

Though Popovsky initially planned for a JFK-inspired concept, Declaration fittingly follows a Founding Fathers theme. The space—a coincidental 1,776 square feet—will be outfitted with a “contemporary/colonial” look, and not-so-colonial pizza ovens for turning out pies named after famous signers of the Declaration of Independence. There’ll also be a small cocktail bar, and concise list of wines for accompanying the seasonal menu.

While an opening is slated for fall of this year, Popovsky is also looking in other historic markets like Boston or Philadelphia to debut another themed restaurant. We’re hoping Millard Fillmore’s Bar & Grille is up next.

What Should Be DC’s Next President-Themed Restaurant?

Sometimes DC really is a cliché of itself. Just look at its unending political- and presidential-themed restaurants.

We’ve got Lincoln Restaurant with its penny-dotted floor and Roosevelt-inspired Teddy and the Bully Bar with a monocle-made chandelier and Mount Rushmore wall. Farmers & Distillers pays homage to George Washington with artwork of Mount Vernon and America’s first president as a hipster with a man-bun. The latest? Founding Farmers, opening in Reston on April 11, tributes Thomas Jefferson. (Plume and Declaration likewise have strong Jefferson undercurrents—as “Founding Foodie,” the third President is quite popular dining room fodder.)

Really, it’s only a matter of time before someone decides to open a James Quincy Adams eatery. Or maybe a John F. Kennedy one? We asked: who should be next?
