Good Stuff Eatery
This week’s Neighborhood Eats includes a new location for Good Stuff Eatery, a chocoholic’s heaven in Bethesda, and another Philly restaurant import.
Open: The third Good Stuff Eatery from Chef Spike Mendelsohn opened in Georgetown on Monday at 3921 M Street NW, according to Eater. The burger joint’s new location features a new permanent menu item: the red velvet shake.
Max Brenner opened its first area location in Bethesda on Wednesday at 7263 Woodmont Avenue. Best known for its chocolate-heavy menu, it delivers a variety of over-the-top chocolate creations, chocolate fondue, and hot and cold chocolatey drinks. The main courses include an assortment of American comfort foods like mac and cheese, burgers, and pizza alongside fish tacos, risotto, salads and paninis. And of course, the chocolate isn’t just in the desserts: you’ll find cocoa- and chili powder-dusted waffle fries, and black and tan-battered onion rings with dark chocolate ranch dressing.
Opening Soon: Bar Charley, the latest restaurant from El Chucho’s Jackie Greenbaum and Gordon Banks, is aiming to open at 1825 18th Street NW on August 22, according to The Washington Post. The new bar will offer affordably priced beers, wines ($7-12), and cocktails. The menu will be a mix of small plates and sandwiches, as well as a variety of pies.
Opening Eventually: A new location of Red Rocks is set to open at 1348 H Street NE some time before Labor Day, according to District Cuisine. The pizzeria will feature a rooftop patio with 20 beers on tap.
Philadelphia chef and restaurateur Jose Garces will be opening an Argentinian steakhouse in The Madison Hotel at 1177 15th Street NW, according to Eater. It replaces The Federalist, which will close this Sunday. The Ecuadorean restaurateur has Spanish and Cuban restaurants, and American bistros and bars.
Chain World of Beer is opening a second D.C.-area location in Reston Town Center, with an eye on a Spring 2014 opening, according to the Washington Business Journal. The bar will serve hundreds of different beers as well as a selection of wine and spirits. The local World of Beer franchise also offer larger food menus compared to other locations, meeting the requests of its customers.

But the menu will receive a revamp from David Hong, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America.
