Good Stuff Eatery
Location: Capitol Hill, Washington, D.C.
Good for: Lunch
Pros: Amazing selection of burgers, and super condiment bar with a variety of fry dipping sauces.
Cons: This place was crazy crowded - not the place to head if you are trying to grab a super quick bite between meetings.
Ratings and Recommendations:
10/10 - Vegetarians are People Too 'Shroom Burger - organic portobello tops stuffed with Muenster and cheddar cheeses, breaded with panko crumbs, and topped with tomato, lettuce, and good stuff sauce. This was just about the most unique mushroom burger I have ever tasted. The breading made for a very crispy coating around the tender portobello tops. The flavor was exceptional. My only complaint is that the cheeses stuffed within the mushroom tops were molten hot and oozed out like a wicked lava flow in my mouth. Ouch!
8/10 - Village fries - French fries topped with fresh thyme, rosemary and black pepper. These were mighty tasty, though not quite as crispy as I like my fries. They were fantastic with the Old Bay dipping sauce!
Notes: I made a huge mistake. I did not order the Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake. I heartily regret this lapse in judgment, and continue to beat myself up about it. Also, I met Spike Mendelsohn from Top Chef Chicago, who is a co-owner of Good Stuff Eatery. I got a fist-pump and a "right on" when I complimented his restaurant. It was not quite the brush with fame I expected from a visit to D.C. (I was hoping for Joe Biden), but it was good enough for me!
