But one thing is for certain: his presidential hamburger will.
Cue Good Stuff Eatery, the DC-based maker of burgers, the likes of which are favored by a certain leader of the free world (in case you give a sh*t), opening tomorrow in the Loop. (See the slideshow here.)
The man behind this is one Spike Mendelsohn, the affable Top Chef alum who has made a name for himself with his take on the humble burger and fries.
The inside’s nice, but nothing too fancy. Tall ceilings, whitewashed barn wood, leather-lined booths. The kind of place you just kind of tumble into whenever you want a lunch that requires the use of multiple napkins and/or malt vinegar.
You have 13 burgers to choose from. The Spike’s Sunnyside is all bacon and eggs and brioche bun, but start with the basic Farmhouse burger and work your way up. Your fries are topped with rosemary and thyme. There are Creamsicle floats and milkshakes with flavors ranging from red velvet to a toasted-marshmallow gelée.
Which sounds suspiciously French.
