Isabella Eatery, Nearly Twice The Size Of Union Market, Will Open Dec. 11 (Washington Post)
December 1, 2017
Forget soggy egg rolls and lukewarm french fries. With his latest project, celebrity chef Mike Isabella is hoping to revolutionize meals at the mall.
Isabella Eatery, the chef’s 41,000-square-foot food emporium on the third floor of Tysons Galleria, is divided into two sections — one the length of a football field. The 600-seat food court is made up of nine concepts, some of which may sound familiar.
Of two phases, the first, scheduled to open Dec. 11, will include three spots: a third location of Graffiato, which will have a sleeker design than Isabella’s flagship Italian joint in Chinatown; Non-Fiction Coffee, a casual cafe serving juices, coffee, pastries, paninis and toasts; and Retro Creamery, a sweets shop inspired by ice cream parlors of yesteryear.
