Restaurateur Alan Popovsky is best known for Lincoln, his whimsical ode to Honest Abe featuring dishes such as pork belly beignets and bone marrow and biscuits.
Designer Maggie O’Neill created the restaurant’s art installations, including the famous penny floor featuring more than a million coins. Popovsky and O’Neill have teamed up again at Teddy & the Bully Bar, the new Theodore Roosevelt-inspired spot opening at 1200 19th Street, Northwest, in late June. Popovsky plucked Michael Hartzer—last seen at Jack Rose in Adams Morgan—to helm the kitchen, which will include some of Teddy’s favorite dishes.
But we’ll let him tell you all about it. Check out this video, in which Popovsky, O’Neill, and Hartzer take us inside the exciting new project.
