Guess who was spotted at Spike Mendelsohn's Good Stuff Eatery?

The Obama's love a good burger.

Michelle and her entourage have made several stops to local eateries for a fast food fix, but one spot in particular is close to our Bravo burger-loving hearts. The First Lady made a commotion this past Saturday when she stopped by the Good Stuff Eatery on Capitol Hill, owned by former Top Chef contestant Spike Mendelsohn. The crew sampled a variety of burgers, including the "Prez Obama" burger, which, according to Mendelsohn, has a variety of favors that "come together. Like the public behind Obama."

And that's good stuff.

I think it is great that the Obamas are frequenting the local places. I imagine the local businesses like it too. Every time, the President visits a local place business improves.

Good on ya Spike- you were the most entertaining cheftestant that season and to think you didn't have to cheat on your girlfriend on national television to do it...

Lauren, why is everything a negative for Obama. You can't even talk about a burger without trashing him. He is your president for the next several years, so accept it and get over it. I wish I had a burger right now!

That is a pretty big deal, so congrats to Spike. I only wish this had happened to a less loathsome cheftestant. Spike was the worst - an arrogant, obnoxious, mediocre chef who was allowed to stay in the competition far too long.

Now if Obama had been spotted at Harold's Perilla, I would be ecstatic!

people do not "come together" for Obama. His lack of self reliance is disgusting. Make a burger that tastes like that and i will eat it.
