by Staff Writer / Washington Capitals

ARLINGTON, Va. Life After Top Chef, a Bravo Media production that documents the lives of former Top Chef contestants, will feature chef Spike Mendelsohn at a Washington Capitals game in its Wednesday, Nov. 14 episode. The episode, “Mt. Viviani Erupts," will premiere at 9 p.m. on Bravo.

Mendelsohn attended the April 5, 2012 Capitals vs. Panthers game and participated in intermission activities including riding an Olympia, dressing up as mascot Air Slapshot and participating as a member of the ice crew.

“Having been a hockey fan my whole life, being able to be a part of the Caps team culture there was a really cool thing and a day I won’t forget," said Mendelsohn. "I hope Top Chef viewers will enjoy watching my experience as much as I enjoyed being there."

Life After Top Chef documents the lives of four former Top Chef contestants as they reach milestones in both their personal lives and culinary careers. Mendelsohn competed on season four of Bravo’s hit television show Top Chef as well as on Top Chef All-Stars. In 2008 he and his family opened Good Stuff Eatery on Capitol Hill. In Washington D.C., Mendelsohn owns two Good Stuff Eatery locations as well as We, The Pizza.

In addition to highlighting Mendelsohn at a Capitals game, the Nov. 14 episode profiles the chef and his family as they prepare to open the Crystal City, Va., location of Good Stuff Eatery.

Together with Mendelsohn in Washington, D.C., Life After Top Chef focuses on former contestants Richard Blais in Atlanta, Jen Carroll in Philadelphia and Fabio Viviani in Los Angeles.
