Ted’s Bulletin calls itself a family restaurant, and it is, but many of the “children” who come here are in their 20s and 30s and they’re drinking milkshakes laced with coconut rum or maybe vodka and Kahlúa. So it can get rowdy. What you’ll enjoy, besides the retro decor, is the well-done, comfort-food menu: grilled cheese, tomato soup, fried chicken, mac and cheese, barbecued chicken, chili, sloppy joes, and breakfast items (which are served all day). Ted’s Bulletin has another District location at 1818 14th St. NW (tel. 202/265-8337), in the U & 14th Street Corridors.
