Chef Mike Isabella Opens Bandolero in Georgetown May 24th

Like his first and wildly popular Graffiato in Chinatown, Mike Isabella’s Bandolero is a small-plates concept restaurant, only this time, it's Mexican.

With an emphasis on sharing, specialties include the suckling pig taco with apple and habanero mustard, lamb sopes, the “fish stick taco” made from mahi mahi crusted in crushed tortilla chips, and a Mayan pumpkin seed dip called sikil pak.

“When I go out for Mexican food, I want lots of tacos and strong margaritas. Bandolero will have a wide selection of both,” said Chef/Partner, Mike Isabella. “We call it modern Mexican cuisine because we take classic dishes and spin the flavor profiles. You will find tacos filled with octopus, crab meat or raw tuna, nachos topped with goat and salsa made with pumpkin seeds and garnished with fresh fruit.”

Bandolero is at 3241 M Street. Tel: 202.625.4488
