Anyone who knows me well, is aware that I suffer from a bit of New York bias when it comes to food. I’ll often try dishes in other cities only to say something along the lines of, “that was great… but not as good as XYZ in New York.” There are exceptions though. The doughnuts at Voodoo Doughnut in Portland, Oregon – for example – are better than those I’ve had at Doughnut Plant or Peter Pan Bakery in NYC.
So it was with great shock that I discovered the best burger I’d ever eaten at Spike Mendelsohn’s Good Stuff Eatery in Washington, DC last summer. I dream about this burger as much as I dream about Di Fara and now every trip to DC must include a stop at this burger heaven. It’s been known for some time that Spike has been planning on opening a pizza shop next door to Good Stuff Eatery, and it seems that the opening date is soon approaching.
According to NBC.com in Washington:
Former “Top Chef” contestant Spike Mendelsohn is set to open a new endeavor in mid-April, and this one will have little to do with savory layers of beef, cheese and bacon. Don’t get too sad, though, ’cause it’s something just as good. The upcoming We, the Pizza will be located at 305 Pennsylvania Ave. S.E., next door to his Good Stuff Eatery. The chef Spike brought from New York, Mike Colletti, will be moving next door to tend to it.

So it is with unrealistically high expectations that I anticipate the opening of WE, THE PIZZA this spring!
