Spike Mendelsohn brings his D.C.-based burger brand to Chicago.

 

The burger boom in Chicago shows no sign of abating any time soon. Not only is the city jam-packed with original burger concepts all its own — M Burger, Kuma’s Corner, Au Cheval, and Epic Burger among some favorites — but we’ve seen a huge influx of popular burger brand in the past couple years. Umami Burger and Shake Shack came first, and most recently Spike Mendelsohn threw his fedora into the ring with his first Chicago outpost of Good Stuff Eatery. The amiable Top Chef vet surfed to post-television success in D.C. with his casual burger concept, along with a pizza restaurant and a French spot called Béarnaise. The man is doing well. His first major U.S. expansion outside of the East Coast came via Chicago with the launch of Good Stuff Eatery in the Loop. But in such a saturated burger market, can the Good Stuff stand out?
