Ask For:

The highlight. The coup de grace. The pork belly grilled cheese. Adjectives and modifiers don't give it justice. Just try it.
 
The Lowdown:

I get excited about food; that’s a given. But when I find that little perfect compliment to food we call “service”, I dance a jig. Ladies and gentleman, get on your feet for Teddy and the Bully Bar.

The Full Review
The wizards behind Lincoln restaurant brought Teddy’s to us back in June 2013. And if 26-Day-Old, Barrel-Aged Fashioned’s were not enough of a reason to go, they kicked off Brunch on September 28, 2013.  Let the church say, “AMEN!”
This Brunch has my two favorites things: Bottomless and Unlimited.  That is, unlimited food and bottomless Mimosas or Bloody Mary’s.  Basically, you can eat and drink yourself into a coma and wake up just in time for Sunday football!
Let me walk you through the menu…
The menu reads “A Shared Brunch Experience” and true to form you will share giggles of delight and jiggles of a full belly.

Your trip to bottomless starts with fresh pastries.  Bet you bite a chip

 A Southern Style Pickled Shrimp Shooter

A Crispy Fried Oyster Po’ Boy.  Not New Orleans, but it’s good in its own right.

 The classic Eggs Benedict gets an upgrade with peameal bacon.  That poached egg was spot on!

And dip that thing in there.  They belong together!

At this point I needed to get up and stretch my legs.  I needed to allow these brilliant bites to settle in.  How about a walk to the Pancake Station!

My creation in motion.

End result… Strawberry and blueberry with cinnamon butter…. Lawd geezus!

The omelet station has a plethora of pickings..

I found a new chamber for food and caught my third wind.  Back to the bottomless!
Fried chicken & biscuits with honey, mayo and butter

Lamb meatballs with mint.  The spice was just spicy enough.

MIXED REVIEWS:
It’s not that I didn’t like these things.  I just think they need a little work.
Creamy mascarpone grits au gratin.  They are literally one step away.  I have southern roots.  We take pride in our grits…lol

The Mac and Artisnal Cheese.  More depth, less “artisnal”.  Sometimes I hate being so brutally honest.

Let’s close with something lovely…dessert.

866d1e72871d7fd8ab69de5af29f369dSpiced Apple Turnover with Lemon Curd Mousse
Typically, turnovers have a clumsy chutney filling.  This brilliant pastry chef gives you the euphoria of childhood with this “grown up” sauce (my words..lol)

Every cop in the city should have this doughnut and coffee.  On second thought, I’ll keep it to myself.

TIP:
When you go and this is mandatory: Ask for Keon.  The most passionate, hilarious, knowledgable “food presenter” (aka wait staff) in DC.

I know my little ol’ blog won’t make this brunch wildly successful.  It will do that on its own. Just remember who told you about it first.  Did I mention the Mimosas are bottomless?
