One Top Chef's burger joint has found itself in a bit of a pickle.
The suddenly ironically named Good Stuff Eatery, a Washington, D.C., burger joint opened this year by season four's hat-wearing reality chef Spike Mendelsohn, has found itself on the business end of some rather unappetizing health code violations.
The District's Dept.of Health cited the restaurant for what they have deemed several "critical" missteps, including such culinary clangers as storing beef in an alley behind his Capitol Hill café.
For his part, Mendelsohn denied any food faux pas.
"I know how to run a restaurant and I know how to keep it clean," he told D.C.'s WTOP news radio. "You can come right here and you can eat off the floor. I don't run anything unhealthy."
