Spike Mendelsohn and his crew are about to open the third Good Stuff Eatery at 3291 M St., NW, next to Rhino Bar & Pumphouse. The two-story Georgetown Good Stuff Eatery expects to open within a couple of weeks, or at least by the end of the month, said Ryan Helfer of Good Stuff Eatery.
Helfer also said that while the new business has completed most of its hiring at the M Street spot there are still a few more slots to fill — Georgetown@GoodStuffEatery.com; 202-286-9125.
The five-year-old business offers “handmade burgers, hand-cut fries and handspun ice creamshakes,” it says, and is “committed to freshness, fellowship and friendliness.” It expects to average about 1,000 hamburgers per day at its new location. (We especially like the Prez Obama burger.)
The original Good Stuff Eatery is at Capitol Hill; the second in Crystal City in Arlington, Va. A fourth Good Stuff Eatery is slated to open in Philadelphia in a few months.
Other restaurants headed by Mendelsohn are We, the Pizza and Bearnaise, a steak frite place, which opened a week ago. Both are at Capitol Hill.
Mendelsohn is well known for his appearances at cable TV’s “Top Chef.” Other places that Good Stuff Eatery is checking out include China and Dubai, the head chef told the Eater blog a few month ago.
