Friday night my friend Amy invited me to Good Stuff Eatery. Good Stuff Eatery is the new restaurant on Capitol Hill created by Spike from Top Chef. If you like burgers, you'll love Good Stuff. Spike has created some innovative twists on American favorites. Amy and Brendan tried the Spike's 5 Napkin which is similar to a croque monsieur but with a burger instead of ham on a brioche bun. Delicious! Corey ordered Colletti's Smokehouse with bacon, cheddar, fried vidalia onion rings and chipotle bbq sauce. Excellent! I went for the Good Stuff Melt by recommendation from the girl at the counter. Tasty! We all shared a large Spike's Village Fries topped with fresh thyme, rosemary and cracked pepper. We dipped the fries in all of the creative mayo sauces. Mango was my favorite. Amy opted for the Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake which was like a little taste of heaven. Finally a good burger joint in the District! The restaurant has plenty of indoor seating and some outdoors as well. You can also enjoy a 20 oz Blue Moon on draft for only $4.50. (They're still working on getting the oranges to garnish.) I told Spike about Capital Cooking and he said that he'd be down to be a guest chef on the show. You'll have to tune in soon for a behind the scenes look at Good Stuff Eatery!
