Remember when Top Chef alum Spike Mendelsohn came to New York on a pizza-eating odyssey and told us he was planning to open a Napolean [sic] pizza joint? Well, NBC Washington reports that We the Pizza will begin selling thin-crust slices next to his burger joint, Good Stuff Eatery, at 305 Pennsylvania Avenue S.E. in mid-April. Meanwhile, the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Buzz blog reports that last season’s fan favorite Kevin Gillespie is working on a book (though they don’t say much about it) in addition to planning a barbecue restaurant in his native Hotlanta.
