Popular Italian Eatery Debuts Food Truck Tomorrow

Popular Italian Eatery Debuts Food Truck Tomorrow

For one day only, Chef Mike Isabella will be taking his non-traditional Italian eatery, Graffiato, on wheels throughout D.C. on Wednesday.

With the help of the restaurant’s partner, CityEats, Isabella will be passing out sample bites prepared at Graffiato for all to try.

Chef Isabella also plans to test his fans knowledge of ingredients with a “ Challenge Your Palate” contest. Those who win the contest could score free lunch at Graffiato or autographed copies of Isabella’s cookbook set to release in September.

Known for its hand-rolled pastas, delicious artisanal pizzas, and my favorite roasted potato gnocchi, see where the Graffiato Food Truck plans to stop on Wednesday.
