Crazy Good Italian

Mike Isabella

Kapnos, Graffiato, and G Sandwich, Washington, D.C.

After Top Chef made him a household name, Mike Isabella took the capital by storm with his bold and inspired approach to Italian and Mexican cuisines. This white-hot talent’s return to the Beard House coincides with the release of his first cookbook, Crazy Good Italian.
