Mike Isabella

Eater DC chats up Graffiato general manager James Horn, who dishes a bit about the sort of celebrities that chef Mike Isabella‘s neo-Italian starfucker clubhouse, um, celebrates:  “Our VIPs are people like [The Source’s] Scott Drewno and [Proof and Estadio’s] Haidar [Karoum] and [The Passenger’s] Derek Brown and people that work their asses off just the same as we do. I tell you, if Scott and [movie star] Brad Pitt walked in at the same time for a table of four, Scott would be seated in a much more timely manner than Brad Pitt. I welcome Brad Pitt, but those are our VIPs, those are our celebrities. People that inspire us.”
