Spike Dishes on Good Stuff Eatery, ‘Top Chef,’ and More

Spike speeds past a burger and shake in his new Capitol Hill burger joint.
We caught up with fedora-obsessed former Top Chef contestant Spike Mendelsohn at his soon-to-open Capitol Hill burger joint, Good Stuff Eatery. After a toasted-marshmallow milkshake, he revealed (on video) which DC chef-buddy you'll see on the next Top Chef, his real feelings for judge Tom Colicchio, and in-the-works locations of more family restaurant ventures. Scroll down for our video interview with Spike—plus a video-tour of the interior of Good Stuff and photos of everything from his dad to the Five Napkin Burger.

Interview with Spike: “I wasn’t so always focused on the food, ‘cause I was trying to cozy up to the camera a little bit.”

NOTE: We put up a written transcript of this interview.
