Expansion Plans for Top Chef’s Voltaggio, Isabella, and Izard

Season 6’s Bryan Voltaggio will be switching things up between his Frederick, MD flagship, Volt, and his newest venture, Lunchbox, which kinda sounds like little bro’s ink.sack. Maybe great brothers just think alike? For more on Lunchbox, Bryan’s once-stalled project North Market Kitchen, and a possible diner tentatively called Range, check out reports here and here. Our heads are spinning.

Mike Isabella of Season 6 and All-Stars, who opened Graffiato in June, plans to open another DC area restaurant, called Bandolero, serving “modern Mexican” small plates in the form of “salsas, guacamoles, ceviches, tacos, vegetables.” This maestro of multiples is apparently looking at spaces for yet a third concept as well. Reports here and here.

And Season 4 winner Stephanie Izard has revealed details about her upcoming “Little Goat,” a diner concept across the street from her wildly successful The Girl and The Goat in Chicago.
