Chris Diebel and Kolby Jones, partners in Bubba—Southern Comforts, will open Teddy Maroons this fall at 23rd and Ingersoll (in the new mixed-use structure called the Soll). But of course, you know that already from following me on my All Things Food DSM Facebook page, where I broke the news last week.

Here’s a little more to the story:

• Yes, the name of the venue is a play on the rivalry between Theodore Roosevelt High School and Dowling Catholic High School.

• No chef has been named as yet, but Diebel promises an elevated take on American bar-grill food, including salads that “aren’t just an afterthought.” (I’m holding you to that, Mr. Diebel!) Weekend brunch will also be served.

• The 40-seat bar will feature 16 beers on tap as well as a cocktail program highlighting fresh-squeezed juices.

• While there will be big-screen TVs in the bar, the 88-seat dining room will be TV-free. So much the better to enjoy the big, cozy booths with five-foot high-back dividers and the massive 12-foot glass windows that will wrap around the place. “This is not a typical dark tavern,”  Diebel says. A 50-seat patio will open next spring.

• Diebel described an interior decor inspired by geometric patters and an “East Coast prep school” color palette and vibe. Check out the mood board (above) he shared with me for a peek.
