Chef Spike Mendelsohn is a Playboy

Hey Playmates, Spike Mendelsohn wants you to visit his restaurants. The burgers are on him!

Is Spike Mendelsohn Opening a Steak Frites Place?

It seems that opening up new locations of Good Stuff Eatery in Georgetown and Crystal City (among other places) isn't all that Top Chef alum Spike Mendelsohn is up to these days. Y&H just obtained a copy of a letter from Mendelsohn's sister and spokesperson, Micheline Mendelsohn, to First Lady Michelle Obama, a sometime Good […]

On Capitol Hill, Skipping Spike for Ba Bay Instead

Since I don't live on Capitol Hill, I try to indulge in the best the neighborhood has to offer whenever I'm passing through. During the last year or so, these mini-vacations have more often than not left me sitting in one of Spike Mendelsohn's outposts, whether it be stuffing my face with a Prez Obama […]

A Black Friday Shopping Guide for People Who’d Rather Eat

Allow me to offer a disclaimer before I start: You can trust my picks for the District's best shopping districts as much as you can trust Bernie Madoff's financial advice. Through years of selective focus, I can walk through any neighborhood and ignore all manner of shoe shops, clothing stores, and perfumeries, my mind singularly […]

Ella’s Wood Fired Pizza: Come for the Beer, Stay for the Pies

Seasonal beer gets me every damn time. So when I received an e-mail from Ella's Wood Fired Pizza yesterday afternoon informing me of their new beer lineup, I quickly rearranged my dinner plans. What better to go with a tall glass of limited-edition suds than a wood fired pizza from Ella's? Their new beer lineup includes Brooklyn Oktoberfest, Uinta Wyld […]

Last Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

The big news from last week was not that Spike Mendelsohn again dominated readers' attention — it's apparently humanely impossible to resist the draw of a local celebrity chef — but that Budweiser's Select 55 finally fell out of the Top 5! The Beerspotter's original item had been a Top 5 performer for almost a […]

First Look: Spike Mendelsohn’s We, The Pizza on Capitol Hill

Spike Mendelsohn finally opened We, The Pizza yesterday on Capitol Hill, and from what I heard the place was packed. By the time, I got there in the mid-afternoon, the crowd had thinned, if mostly because Spike and Co. weren't allowing anyone inside the place. A paper sign was affixed to the entrance that read: […]

Last Week’s Greatest Hits on Young & Hungry

Spike Mendelsohn's now-it's-open, now-it's-not pizzeria continued to attract readers in droves to the Y&H blog, probably because no one had any clue when the joint would actually open. It's supposed to launch today. The week was marked by some other high-trafficked items, including the latest food trucks coming to our streets this summer. Take a […]
