Delicious: The Theodore

It’s hard to say what namesake Teddy Roosevelt would think of The Theodore, but it certainly looks like somewhere he’d hang out. With its dark-paneled bar, over-stuffed blue velvet arm chairs and hunting-inspired décor, it’s a bit like stepping back in time.

“It’s all about creating an atmosphere, an energy,” says chef/owner Tim Byres. “We set up the story of the place and then fill in the details of the menu.”
