I’ve watched Top Chef on Bravo since season one, and therefor consider myself a fan. Last year, there was a somewhat abrasive chef named Spike, who while cooked what looked like amazing food, seemed to have a serious attitude. Anyway, he made it into the top four and was then kicked off, and I hadn’t heard much about him since.
However, that all changed this past weekend. I found out that Spike had opened a burger place on the Hill called “Good Stuff.” We got there and there was a ridiculous line, but it was worth it. And, Spike himself was working the line. Talk about dedication.
I recommend the Colletti Smokehouse Burger and a Toasted Marshmallow Shake (made with fresh custard every morning) . Spike recommended this combination when I asked him what was best, and boy was he right.
Go to “Good Stuff.” It’s incredible.
PS: Just on a side note, Spike was not the abrasive tool that I thought he would be. He was extremely engaging, actually talked with people, was friendly, and seemed to be enjoying his successes.
