    Top Chef Mike Isabella set the DC food world into a frenzy this weekend with rumors that he was opening another restaurant in D.C.

    According to the Washington Post: Hook, the popular seafood restaurant in Georgetown, caught on fire and will re-launch as soon as February with a small plates Mexican menu by Mike Isabella.

    "Isabella envisions 'awesome cocktails' and 'lots of tacos' -- stuffed with everything from octopus to asparagus with beet salsa -- on his menu of 'reworked classics,'" wrote the Post.

    Isabella is currently the chef of Graffiato, the popular restaurant in Chinatown that is usually packed any day of the week.
