Reinventing Mall Dining

At The Theodore, we believe the devil is in the details, which is why we put just as much focus in the atmosphere of the restaurant as we do in our hearty and distinctly American entrees and our uncomplicated and approachable cocktails.

“ Keep Your Eyes on the Stars and Your Feet on the Ground ”

The Team

Tim Byres

 — Chef/Owner

As an admirer of the eatery’s namesake, Byres takes a lot of Teddy Roosevelt’s ideals and beliefs to heart and applies them to every aspect of his life, including his role as culinary leader. Byres introduces adventure and anticipation with The Theodore; he is the bridge between all areas of the restaurant, including day-to-day, and brings the culinary vision and know-how that will make The Theodore stand a cut above.

Byres sees The Theodore as a way to help quench his everlasting thirst for knowledge and to hone a new craft. Just as he became the expert on live-fire cooking with SMOKE, he hopes to do the same with The Theodore when it comes to classic American cooking and breads. He has become completely immersed in his role at the restaurant and intends to tell a story with his dishes that will honor the timeless American classics that he is reinventing.
