Just how much buzz does a restaurant get when Michelle Obama visits? Well, clearly a lot. And this hasn’t been lost on Top Chef’s Spike Mendelsohn, who considers Mobama a “good customer” of his D.C. burger joint, Good Stuff Eatery. Such a good customer, in fact, that today he unveiled the “Michelle’s Melt” to go along with his “Prez Obama Burger.” It’s a free-range turkey burger with caramelized onions, Swiss cheese, tomato, lettuce, and an herb mayo inspired by the White House garden, on a wheat bun. Proceeds from Michelle’s Melt go toward D.C. Central Kitchen, which feeds the needy.
