Many of you know Mike Isabella as the executive chef of Washington’s popular Mediterranean restaurant, Zaytinya, or as a Chef’testant on Top Chef Las Vegas. Next Spring, he’ll have a new title – Chef/Owner of Graffiato, an Italian-inspired restaurant located just behind the Verizon Center in the Penn Quarter neighborhood of Washington, DC.
Chef Isabella is very hands on with his first restaurant. As you can see he is the first to “graffiti” his new building; appropriate for a restaurant whose name means scratched or etched in Italian.
