 MONDAY PASTA NIGHT AT TED’S
GAINS FAVOR IN THE COMMUNITY!
“ALL THE FOODTHAT’S GOODTO EAT!”
“PRIDE FOR OLD GLORY” 
Let’s be honest — these days tryingto pick a restaurant on Barracks Rowis like trying to pick a winner at Pim-
lico before the rst heat. And withsuch a wide selection, it’s difcult toknow how to handicap them. But
now we have Ted’s BULLETIN in
the starter’s gate — a real Americanclassic joint with a bit of style.As diners will gure out early, the
fare is unabashedly familiar — likema’s blueberry pie but a damn sightbetter--and that’s great for kids and
adults alike. And far from primitive,
there’s nothing gussied up aboutBULLETIN except the trappings andlights from the old Philly Convention
Hall where pugs like Joe Frazier rstfought for a title in 1965.

TED’S BULLETIN OPENS ON CAPITOL HILL
“WHO’S TED?”
 Ted grew up in the 30’s in the heightof the Great Depression in “Bloody”Mingo County in Southern West Vir-
ginia. If employed, most worked in thecoal elds, and as one of eight kids,
there was not always enough food to
feed the whole family. Thirty-plus
years later, as we would travel backto the “hollers” of his hometown, theplace names were unforgettable – Wil-liamson, Delbarton, Chattaroy, RedJacket, Logan, Boone and better – DogPatch, Jesse, Big Ugly…“You can call me anything, exceptlate for dinner,” was one of those“Dad” sayings that was repeated somany times throughout the years thatall we could do was groan and roll our
eyes. But at the heart of it, I think that’s
why Ted always had a pot of chili, beef stew, or some kind of rustic soup on
the stove.
Ted became the “cook of the neigh-
borhood.” And even though we lived
in a small city, he always had a big gar-
den. All the neighbors knew that Ted
“overplanted” tomatoes, corn (alwaysSilver Queen), zucchini, squash, greenbeans, cucumbers and everything elseunder the sun…so he could keep thewhole neighborhood “chock fulla”
produce. This ritual happened everyspring and summer. “Gotta give all thisaway, so it doesn’t go to waste.”
For us, it was a different era growing
up in the sixties and seventies. More
than today, where we seem to be moreprivate in our neighborhoods, therewas always someone knocking on the
front door. Door-to door salesmen (and
women) selling Encyclopedias, vac-uum cleaners, cleaning supplies, you
name it. And neighbors, the Postman,the UPS man... it didn’t matter who,
Ted always took them by surprise ask-
ing them if they had had lunch.
by Mario Puzo
Monday night at Ted’s is Pasta Night,and the mention of an Italian familyfeast brings to mind a light-heartedgroup thoroughly enjoying each oth-
er’s company to start the new week.
Family time is also fun time as youprepare yourself for an array of deli-cious, home cooked foods set out onbright checkered tablecloths!Kids can honor their parents with ahearty “Salud” and a raised glass of 
ginger ale or zzy water — complete
with a cherry and a shot of grena-dine — while the adults relax and en- joy a bottle of our specially selectedred vino direct from the Old Country!Capitol Hill may be far different fromSunny Italy, but on this occasion,
the happy mood is exactly the same.

Ah, the sounds of old Caruso records
and lantern slides of the Italian canals— a vision made in heaven!Our fabulous family style pasta is pre-pared with superb Italian meat sauce,aged grated cheeses, a choice of sauces
or a wonderful nightly special. Ask your
server!
Accompany your pasta with a crisp
salad, a bowl of Chef Eric “Brandino’s”soup du jour and of course the always
popular garlic toast. Then polish off 
your meal in true Italian style with a
steaming hot espresso. Always remem
-ber, Italians never hurry a meal and if you take their advice, it’s ok to keep thekids up past 8 on a Monday evening!From our Ted’s family to yours, we sin-cerely hope that at the end of your mealeveryone will stand up, clasp hands andsay in contented tones — “Mi piace!” or“We like it!”
Ted’s corporate Art Deco features were salvaged from thePhiladelphia Civic Center, circa 1928
In this place, the food is excellent and
better yet, the price is right.
It’s a joint for all Hillys of all ages andfor the money, you can’t get a betterburger in town; No jokes here—theygrind their own meat in-house!Where else can you strap on the oldfeedbag and get Chef Shannan Tronco-so’s take on a grilled cheese for the kidswith classic Wonder Bread or one foryourself with the real deal, Texas Toast?Dunk it in a bowl of her homemade to-
mato soup and it’s a runaway winner.
Sure to round out as a top favorite withthe fans will be hits such as the classicCobb salad with Green Goddess dress-ing, meat loaf and real un-canned peasand hot cornbread on the side; With allof this on the menu, it’ll be just like hit-ting the trifecta!For the drop in diner and neighbor-hood early birds, sweets for the honeysinclude homemade toaster pastries,
shakes, cookies and peanut butter pie.
Coffee and Italian-style frothy espresso
drinks won’t set you back either. Ven
-ture in or rap on the takeout window forPastry Chef Erica Chirunomula’s grab-
and-go savory pies, mufns and hotbreakfast sandwiches.
Finally, a real winner is the projector
that grinds out old ickers for the edi
-cation of elbow-benders who might be
present. The movie menu includes such
stalwarts as The Marx Brothers and Jim-my Stewart—and miracle of miracles—
there’s no cover or minimum.
You’d have to go far to do better thanTed’s Bulletin; and relax--this placedoesn’t do trick dogs, talking dolls or
assorted feats of magic. It’s just a mec
-ca for the hungry and it’s damn pleasantany time of day!BULLETIN opens daily at 7am, 7 days

FRED HERRMANN
CAPITOL HILLRENAISSANCE MAN 
Special thanks to Director of Opera-tions and pal, Freddie Herrmann, forsharing his entire music collection for
our restaurant soundtrack. It has been
speculated that Fred may have beenborn in the wrong musical era, favoringthe sounds of the 30s and 40s to today’s
modern “junk” as Fred puts it.
Not so coincidentally, his name worksfor that era as well, somehow we can see“Freddie Herrmann and the Fred Her-
rmann All-Stars” on the bandstand. No
small stretch, Fred was a proud mem-ber of the Washington Redskins Band
for a ne ten year stint from 1987-1997,
in what Fred calls “The glory days of 
R.F.K.!”
Just as interesting is Fred’s longtime
Capitol Hill association. Just across the
street at the current “Frame of Mine”storefront at 522 8th Street, is the siteof the former Fred Herrmann Restau-rant which was in operation over 100
years ago from 1895-1905. That greatbuilding was built specically to housethe restaurant. Upon Fred’s great greatgrandfather’s passing, the letters MRS.
were added to the signage, when the
misses took over.Aserious piece of Capitol Hill history,
with Fred keeping up the family tradi-tion in restaurants and residence!

He fed them all. Simple grilled cheese
and tomato soup was a staple, and as al-
ways – that pot was on the stove.As kids, we were always embarrassed
by this gesture, but looking back, heknew that food was a great equalizer,it was his way of keepin’it real…he
rmly believed, and told us often, that
he thought that making a meal, diningtogether, was one of the most civilizedthings we could do with our fellow
man.
Ted would “hold court,” in the kitchenor on the front porch, often with Miller
Lite in hand “ponticating” with all whowould join in. He was the perfect host
and would’ve been a natural at the res-
taurant business. Though he never did
own his own place, we have long talkedabout opening a place in his honor…sohere we are in Washington, DC – light
years from those early days. We know
he would have had fun here at Ted’s
BULLETIN. Enjoy!
Ted was partner Mark and Ty Neal’s father.
