If you are a "Top Chef" fan and love delicious handcrafted burgers, then you'll swoon over DC restaurant, Good Stuff Eatery. YUM. The burger joint was started by former Top Chef contestant, Spike, and is based on American favorite cuisine - aka burgers - that are farm fresh and use the highest quality ingredients. Needless to say, these burgers are the bomb. Lucky for us, we live only a brisk stroll away.
Last night, as with most nights, I didn't feel much like cooking, which is very normal this pregnancy for some reason. Despite having great energy during the day, I feel a bit lazy at night. I believe it's because I have a toddler this pregnancy verses last pregnancy in which I had myself and Ryan to care for. Adding Lincoln into the mix and being a stay-at-home mama sure is a lot of work, especially while pregnant! Thus, cooking at night is something I generally poop out on. We also didn't really have much in the fridge, so when Ry got home we decided to go out.
We went back and forth about where we should dine. Ryan felt like fast casual - Chipotle anyone? (he is seriously a Chipotle addict - and a Chipotle stock owner, go figure). I, on the other hand, felt like something a little more ritzy. Not anything super fancy, just something a step up from fast casual. After throwing a few options out and clearly noticing we were on different pages, we decided to go with Good Stuff Eatery.
As you all know, I've been trying to keep my diet in check so the thought of eating burgers for dinner honestly wasn't something I was super excited about. I mean, sure, I love me a good burger, but I really really really want to keep my weight under control this time and putting a juicy, fresh burger in front of me is a good way to blow off my healthy diet. I browsed through the menu and noticed they had salad options. While most of them had bacon in them, they looked okay. Eh, what the heck? I thought. If you're going to go to a burger joint, you might as well get the burger! However, in that moment I made the decision that I would share my burger with Lincoln and that I would eat the burger open faced (with only one half of the bun) or with no bun at all.
We headed out the door to what was a beautiful night. It took us no more than 20 minutes to get to Good Stuff and we snapped some fun shots along the way. Hope you enjoy!
