I apologize for the lack of posts! Last week was a hectic 4 day work week before heading to Washington DC to visit Jordan’s sister, Meredith!
Jordan and I left immediately after work on Thursday and arrived in the evening just in time to grab a bite to eat with Meredith and hangout with her before getting some sleep. She had to work the next day and we had a long day of touring ahead of us in the 100 degree weather!
Luckily there are many places to visit that are indoors! While Meredith was at work Jordan and I headed over to the Smithsonian to the Natural History Museum and American History Museum.
After we were done at the Smithsonian we headed over towards the Capitol, where Meredith works so that she could direct us where to eat lunch before going on a tour of the capitol (with her as our guide of course!!).
Meredith suggested a place Good Stuff Eatery, which is run by Food Networks Spike Mendelsohn! The restaurant is set up almost like a Five Guys. You stand in line and place your order and then grab a seat. Jordan and I were given a pager to let us know when our order was done. I ordered the Michelle [Obama] Melt! (There is also a Prez Obama Burger!) The sandwich contains Turkey burger, caramelized onions, swiss cheese, ruby tomato, lettuce, herb garden mayo on a wheat bun. Jordan and I also split a large order of Spike’s Village Fries- hand-cut fries topped with fresh thyme, rosemary, and sea salt.
The sandwich was AMAZING!! What a perfect named and delicious sandwich to have for lunch in Washington DC! CLICK HERE FOR THE MENU.
Afterwards we met Meredith for a tour of the capitol. She did an amazing job! She also got to take us to the floor. It was exciting to be in the exact room where the State of the Union and many other events take place.
I have a few more restaurants in Washington DC that I will be sharing with you soon!
