GM heard an interesting rumor the other day: that Spike Mendelsohn, star of Top Chef and the chef behind Capitol Hill’s Good Stuff Eatery and We the Pizza, is opening up shop in Georgetown. Specifically, the location mentioned was the old Morso space, a restaurant which was open for about five minutes last fall.
GM reached out to Good Stuff Eatery to confirm, but didn’t hear anything back. So maybe the rumor is false, but if it is true it could be one of the more interesting restaurant openings in Georgetown this year. Good Stuff Eatery has its fans (and its detractors) and We the Pizza has garnered good reviews. A Mendelsohn restaurant would at the very least bring a little pizzazz to the Georgetown restaurant scene–a scene that hasn’t had an exciting opening since Hook in 2008.
If and when GM hears confirmation, he’ll pass it on.
