    He's doing some pop up times at tacklebox in cleveland park for 3 weeks later this month/early may. You can make a reservation a bandolerodc.com which directs you to CityEats. You need a credit card to hold the rez with a $65 no show fee.

    I'm in for Apr 25.

        Based on what we tasted at Taste of the Nation, we would agree.

          Really? We weren't super impressed at Graffiato but we'd give them a 2d chance . I wonder if we should cancel the reservation..

            It was just a charity event, but I won't go to a $65 a head dinner when that amount would get me a screaming good meal with drinks and wine and Palena, Dino or Ripple on the same metro stop. Or a meal at Bar Pilar or St Ex. Or Hanks.

          Someone should open a strip club/small plates restaurant. Topless tapas!
