D.C.-based Top Chef's Spike Mendelsohn's camp today confirmed the location of the Philly branch of his Good Stuff Eatery. 

My real estate sources had been spot-on. As I speculated two weeks ago, it is 108 S. 18th St. - which is just south of Chestnut.

Mendelsohn rep Jordyn Lazar told me that no timetable was set.

It had been a series of Japanese restaurants before the last one - Numa - recently closed.

I'm told that Mendelsohn's people dropped a lot of money to cinch the location, across from Di Bruno's and Continental Mid-town.
