Hamburgers on the Hill: Good Stuff Eatery comes to DC

  We sipped champagne and munched on mini-burgers with Chef Spike Mendelsohn and several other Top Chef alumni as they celebrated the official grand opening of Good Stuff Eatery.

Chef Spike’s newest venture features handcrafted farmhouse burgers served on soft Pennsylvania Dutch buns, crispy handcut fries, and a variety of wedge salads. His personal favorites include Spike’s 5 Napkin—a burger topped with a farm fresh fried egg, maple bacon, and cheese nestled on a brioche bun—and Colletti’s Smokehouse—a burger smothered in chipotle BBQ sauce and stacked high with Vidalia onion rings. One standout among his various frozen desserts is the handspun toasted marshmallow shake—gooey goodness!
Open since July 7, the restaurant has attracted swarms of Hill denizens, who have lined up around the block for their burger fix. A true “family affair,” Good Stuff Eatery is owned and operated by Chef Spike and most of his immediate family.  His dad, Harvey, confessed that he and Spike’s mom are long-time restaurateurs with over 40 establishments in the Montreal area. (Mon Dieu!) Chef Spike is obviously a chip off the old block—he plans to open two more Good Stuff Eateries soon, and also hopes to add two more “chef-y” (his word) restaurants to DC’s vibrant dining scene.
