Status: Open at 11 a.m. today
It's officially day one at Top Chef alum Spike Mendelsohn's burger and shake shop, Good Stuff Eatery. There is, of course, a pretty strong media blitz going on at the shop: Chef Spike is in attendance and there are prizes being given away, so let your feelings on lining up guide your decision on whether or not to check it out ASAP. Hours are 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and noon to 8 p.m. on Sunday. Menu is here.
This is the first Philly restaurant for Mendelsohn, and his fourth Good Stuff Eatery overall. In his home base of D.C., he's also got Béarnaise (a French bistro known for its steak-frites) and a pizza place with four locations called We, The Pizza. Mendelsohn will join Philly.com's Michael Klein today at 2 p.m. for a special live chat, should you have any burning questions.
