Yes, Mike Isabella Is Looking at Spaces To Open Yet Another Restaurant

Hoo boy. This is quite the week in Mike Isabella restaurant news and rumors. First came Monday's bombshell that the Graffiato chef is opening a Mexican restaurant named Bandolero in the old Hook space in Georgetown. And now Prince of Petworth is reporting some "strictly scuttlebutt though very sweet scuttlebutt" that Isabella is opening either a Greek restaurant or a pizza restaurant at 14th and W streets. What? Eater reached out to Isabella, who gave the following statement:

"I've been looking at spaces all over the city for my next restaurant, including this location. But I haven't signed a lease yet. I'd love to do a Greek restaurant at some point, but I won't commit to a concept until I find a space and sign the lease. For now, I hope everyone is excited about Bandolero and some great Mexican food coming to Georgetown."

A rep clarifies that, yes, he is definitely looking at spaces for a third concept beyond what has just been announced for Bandolero — and he is only looking at spaces in DC. So while it might not necessarily be a Greek restaurant at this particular intersection (though it might?) one thing for sure is that Isabella will be an incredibly busy guy over the next few years.
