The menu at Theodore Rex says, “Items are subject to change on a daily basis due to availability, quality or boredom,” which perfectly explains what it’s like eating here. The food is super seasonal and you’re as likely to see people having tomato toast and stracciatella soup as you are a rib of wagyu. This place is ideal for a date or a small group, but if you come with three or more people, you can basically order the entire menu. This is the first spot you should make a reservation at the next time you’re planning a big night out, but they also save a few tables for walk-ins if you try to go last minute.
