Mike Isabella Is Not Coming To 14th Street (Not Yet, Anyway)
The rumors surrounding chef Mike Isabella and his future projects just keep coming. Prince of Petworth dishes up the latest, involving the Graffiato toque's possible interest in opening some type of restaurant at 14th and W Streets NW: "Word on the street is that it will be a Greek restaurant but I also heard it could be a pizza spot so who knows." Isabella's rep confirms that the celebrated chef has looked at that space—and lots of others—but says no lease is signed or anything. Granted, earlier scuttlebutt that was initially dismissed by Isabella and company turned out to be true. So stay tuned.
