A Former Mike Isabella Restaurant in Ballston Will Now Serve Botox Instead of Margaritas – Eater DC

Posted: September 21, 2019 at 7:47 am

The Ballston building that used to house canceled chef Mike Isabellas Pepita is changing from a cantina that used to deliver toxins to customers livers into an anti-aging and wellness center that injects toxins directly into peoples faces. ARLnow reports that D.C.-based Javan Wellness, which offers services including botox, dermal fillers, IV hydration, and hormone replacement therapy, is targeting an October opening in the space at 4000 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington.

Pepita was part of a complex of three Mike Isabella Concepts restaurants in Arlington that closed earlier than expected in December following a bankruptcy filing amid a scandal stemming from allegations of sexual harassment that a former MIC manager brought against Isabella and his deputies. The Mexican restaurant opened in 2015.

Many of Isabellas former properties are still stagnant, and the companys assets have all been auctioned off in pieces. New York-based Urbanspace has taken over the Isabella Eatery in Tysons Galleria, bringing in an impressive collection of D.C. area chefs but running into its own lawsuit drama. The Hilton Brothers are putting a French bistro into the former Requin Brasserie, the first Isabella restaurant to close, in Virginias Mosaic District development. [ARLnow]
