About The Chef: For the last decade at his Baltimore restaurant Woodberry Kitchen, Spike Gjerde has been a learner and a teacher of the terroir of the region — only using ingredients found within his food system. Now in DC, he has an expanded landscape, with a flavor all its own. His kitchen is led by his longtime Executive Chef Opie Crooks.
