From chef and restaurateur to television personality, food policy advocate and entrepreneur, Spike Mendelsohn is a force to be reckoned with in the culinary world. Spike has several restaurant concepts in the Washington DC area including PLNT Burger, Vim & Victor and We, The Pizza. Spike’s desire to make a positive impact on our food system led to the founding of Eat The Change with friend and fellow entrepreneur, Seth Goldman. After collaborating on PLNT Burger, the two decided to launch a snack brand focused on chef-crafted, nutrient dense snacks that are kind to the planet.

Leveraging his proximity to our nation’s capital, Spike combined his passion for food equity and education by working with organizations like CARE, DC Central Kitchen and Food Rescue US. He also serves as the chairman of DC’s Food Policy Council.

Named after Morris Sheppard, a U.S. Congressman considered the father of Prohibition in the early 1930s, Morris American Bar provides pastel-pretty Wes Anderson inspired surrounds for artisan cocktails with an inviting bar, laid-back seating & a patio. Featuring a rotating monthly cocktail menu, each drink is hand crafted with fresh juices, syrups made on-site, and hand cut ice. Within its first year, Morris has established itself as one of the best cocktail programs in the city and has won multiple "Best Of" awards.
