Our Small-Plates Lingo Profiled in CityPaper

From our “roving kitchen”: root beer brined game hen with black garlic gravy and kale sprouts

The CityPaper recently published an article about the small plates trend in DC, and how local restaurants have created a menu lexicon all their own. (Read the full article here.)

According the article, gone are the days of a traditional three or four-course menu format containing “soups,” “appetizers,” “entrees,” and “desserts.” Teddy & The Bully Bar and sister restaurant LINCOLN feature a selection of locally sourced farm fresh small plates, which range from single bites to shareable snacks that come out of the kitchen as they are ready. We use creative source-oriented lingo on our menus, to get patrons closer to the food’s roots. No two dining experiences are exactly the same – in keeping with the adventurous spirit of our namesake, the 26th POTUS.

Instead of the traditional menu designations, we use:

Teddy & The Bully Bar: Garden, Coast, Plains, Tavern, Docks

Lincoln Restaurant: Pickings, Pantry, Roughage, Farmstead, Meadows

Thanks for the press!

Whether you’re a locavore or a history buff, you’ll love visiting Teddy & The Bully Bar for locally sourced, farm-to-table small plates dining, the freshest cocktail program in the city (featuring classic and signature pre-Prohibition Era cocktails on tap) and Washington DC’s best happy hour.
