$1’shroom burger by good stuff eatery

Shroomin’ at the President’s favorite burger spot…

by Josh Madden

We met Chef Spike Mendelsohn about the time he started his Top Chef fueled rise to recognition. It was long before his restaurants Good Stuff Eatery and We, the Pizza became "must visit" places in Washington DC. It was before the Obamas visited his flagship for the first time (they're regulars now) and ended up with their own namesake burger. I guess you could say we knew him when...but the topic of today's nosh-related obsession is his Good Stuff 'Shroom Burger. If you check out the burger shrine's menu HERE you'll notice immediately that every item this place has put together is a signature creation. The 'Shroom is portabello top stuffed with muenster and cheddar with a flash fried panko crust. The farm fresh lettuce, tomato, and onion accompany this masterpiece atop a a fresh Pennsylvania Dutch bun. This un-burger burger is so good you might consider leaving the the traditional hamburger behind forever. As you can see from the picture above the Good Stuff professionals provide an array of incredible signature sauces, which of course are not needed but trying everything is always encouraged by these foodies. Of course no burger is complete with out the companion of Village fries topped with fresh thyme, rosemary, and sea salt. If you're smart you'll fast until your visit and conclude the meal with a Toasted Marshmallow shake--it tastes even better than you are imagining it right now. We're proud of our buddy Spike and his families fast growing food empire, since you can often catch his mom Cathy at the restaurant being all sweet and mom-like to everyone, she's really rad.
