The former Top Chef contestant who opened three restaurants on Capitol Hill now has another mini-empire brewing in Virginia. Spike Mendelsohn will open a second location of his We, the Pizza next door to the Good Stuff Eatery he opened there. A spokeswoman confirms the restaurant is bound for the former Caribou Coffee space at 2100 Crystal Drive.
The lease was just signed so there isn't a firm timeline in place, but the chef would like to get things open sometime next year. The news comes just after Mendelsohn told QSR Magazine he plans to franchise his Good Stuff chain as soon as he can get interested and qualified franchisees.
