Now Open: Ted's BULLETIN (Capitol Hill)


Nothing beats breakfast...any time of the day. After checking out the menu, I'm ready to try a little of this and a whole lotta that.

I bet the Pumpkin, Chery Vanilla and Strawberry Shakes are good. Hmm.

Extra! Extra! Ted’s BULLETIN Now Open on Capitol Hill
BULLETIN debuts in Barracks Row from the owners of DC’s Matchbox

Washington, D.C. [May 6, 2010] — Ted’s BULLETIN is now open at 505 8th Street, SE in Capitol Hill’s Barracks Row. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily, BULLETIN is a real American classic joint with a bit of style—complete with savory homemade food and a friendly, neighborhood atmosphere to provide relief from today’s time-congested lifestyle.

From the team that brought you DC’s Matchbox, BULLETIN brings classic dishes in a 1930’s atmosphere to Capitol Hill. Named after the late father of partners Mark and Ty Neal, the real Ted was known for his hospitality and often offered soup and sandwiches to postal workers, neighbors and visitors that stopped by his home.

BULLETIN’s fare, though unabashedly familiar, is just like mom used to make but gussied up by the expert hands of matchbox Executive Chef John McArthur and Chef Shannan Troncoso. Chef Shannan’s take on Grilled Cheese on Texas Toast is sure to please mom, pop, the kids and kids-at-heart alike. Guaranteed to round out as top favorites will be hits such as the Walk of Shame Breakfast Burrito, Nana’s Beer Biscuits and Gravy, the Green Green Salad of Home with Green Goddess Dressing, or home-style Meatloaf with Mingo County Ketchup Glaze with a “Big As Ya Head” Twice Baked Potato or Mac and Four Cheese with Andouille on the side. Guests can also sample burgers made from beef ground in-house, fresh fries and soups—including Ted’s Favorite Tomato Soup – now with real tomatoes!

Dine in or knock on the sidewalk takeout window for Pastry Chef Erica Chirunomula’s Homemade Pop Tarts, grab-and-go scrumptious pies, muffins and hot breakfast sandwiches. Pull up a seat at the counter and get to know your neighbor over a slice of Peanut Butter Pie or 7-Up Cake.

BULLETIN features its very own Shaketender ready to whip up custom milkshakes—with or without alcohol. BULLETIN’S signature beer is a “no name” Prohibition-style light or dark brew on tap. A funky and affordable wine list features wines available by the bottle or the carafe with peasant style glassware. Enjoy Classic Cocktails made the old fashioned way with house made mixers, fizzes, sours, egg white scotches, ryes, tequilas and bourbons, served over one perfect sphere of ice in vintage glassware.

The décor at BULLETIN features salvaged and repurposed pieces dating back to the 1930s including traditional felt bulletin boards encased in Art Deco-style metal and glass as well as marble countertops and door trim salvaged from the original Philadelphia Convention Hall. In the evening, old flicker films play on a projector in the dining room. Mahogany paneling, subway tile, brass signage, stamped tin ceilings and ornate deco bronze fixtures usher in an inspired, yet simpler time. The top-of-the-line open kitchen features a double broiler, slicing station and pass-thru where guests are welcome to chat with Chef Shannan and her team.

Ted’s BULLETIN is open Sunday-Thursday from 7:00am – 10:30pm, Friday & Saturday from 7:00am – 11:30am and breakfast is available all day. For more information on BULLETIN please visit, follow the team on Twitter @TedsBulletin) or contact Martha Miller at or (703) 417-2709.
