Is Michael Schlow Eyeing Washington?

In the last couple of years, lots of celebrity chefs from all over the country have descended upon Washington. Last week, we heard that another big-name toque—Boston’s Michael Schlow—has our town in his sights. Adding fuel to the rumor: Schlow, who was a contestant on Top Chef Masters this summer, was recently spotted dining at Bibiana with PassionFood’s Jeff Tunks. Unlike many of the newly landed Washington chefs, Schlow doesn’t have restaurants all over the country—he’s best known for his restaurants in Boston, which include the French-accented Radius and the Italian Via Matta, as well as Alta Strada in Wellesley and at Connecticut casino Foxwoods. Could he be looking to add another eatery to his portfolio?

His publicist would say only that “Michael loves Washington, and he’s looking into opening another restaurant outside of Boston and Connecticut.” Maybe we haven’t seen the end of the Italian-restaurant trend in Washington.
