As the chef-owner of Good Stuff Eatery and We, The Pizza in Washington, D.C., Spike Mendelsohn has made a name for himself in the nation’s capital. He’s worked for culinary icons such as Gerard Boyer in Reims, France; Thomas Keller of The French Laundry, Sirio Maccioni of Le Cirque; and Drew Nieporent at Mai House. After competing on Bravo TV’s Top Chef, Mendelsohn has appeared on shows ranging from Good Morning America to Food Network’s Iron Chef America. In mid-2013, he added another concept to his repertoire — a steak-frites restaurant on Capitol Hill called Béarnaise. He also opened another Good Stuff Eatery in Georgetown, and the location in Philadelphia is under construction.
