Mike Isabella shares his favorite places to eat in Washington D.C.'s Chinatown

Most D.C. power players spend their time in the Capitol or on K Street. Mike Isabella? He spends his time running a dozen acclaimed restaurants, and next year, he'll open a 10-restaurant food hall concept dubbed Isabella Eatery. Expect some familiar favorites like Graffiato and Kapnos, as well as a few new options—including a cocktail bar.

When Isabella isn't running between restaurants, he likes eating in the city's Chinatown. So we asked him for 12 rock-solid picks in the area. He shared his list with us for DINE by Tasting Table, our restaurant discovery app.
