7 Things to Try at Isabella Eatery

Whether you're hankering for tapas, tacos, raw bar, pasta or cocktails (and more), it's all here.

Mike Isabella’s massive, nine-concept food hall is now open on the third level of Tysons Galleria. The 41,000-square-foot eatery features offshoots of several of the famed chef’s popular restaurants (Graffiato, Arroz, Kapnos, Requin, Pepita, Yona), plus a Prohibition-themed cocktail bar, a gourmet coffee counter and a mod ice cream parlor with more than a few tantalizing flavors. Diners will find a veritable bonanza of food and drink options at varying price points, from $220 flights of caviar to tacos for $4.50 a pop. The staff were still working out some significant kinks during our first couple visits, particularly on the service side (don’t go if you’re in a rush). But here are some tasty (and affordable) items we’d order again:

In the category of standout bar snacks, this twist on the classic comfort food shapes the homey ingredients into breaded croquettes, foregoing the usual pie crust.
