Albisu Pulls Out of Ballston; New Graffiato Chef

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

BALLSTON— And then there was one. Victor Albisu, who was aiming to open a Mexican restaurant in Ballston, has pulled out of the controversial Ballston BID restaurant competition. The move comes not long after Mike Isabella announced plans for a Mexican place in Ballston. That means Christina Campos, who was the other finalist and planning a Spanish restaurant, is the winner, Washington Business Journal reports. [WBJ]
