Mendelsohn’s rep Jordyn Lazar confirmed that they signed the lease in mid-July and will be a steak-frites concept. Bearnaise will serve lunch and dinner and it’ll be another sit-down option for the Hill:
“Spike’s really excited about it. He cooked in France when he was in culinary school for awhile. He spent a year there. So he has a lot of things that he loves to cook and that he loves to eat that he’s going to try to incorporate into the menu. But he really wants to stay true to giving Capitol Hill another option for a place for lunch, but that isn’t anything like the fast-casual concepts he already has.”
Everything is still “a big work in progress” —there’s no menu or even a timeline for construction yet — but worth noting is that Bearnaise shares a block with Mendelsohn’s Good Stuff Eatery and We, the Pizza.
What with the the pizza and burger joint already established the question that remains is whether or not Spike will be serving a side of Lipitor with the steak?
Peace, Love and Beef!
