Isabella sent Eater DC a statement that read, in part: "I've never seen decor and lighting be such a large part of a restaurant review...Tom said he liked my food, drink and service at Bandolero, so why is he bashing my decor so much?" Sietsema tweeted last night: "[P]eople go to restaurants for service and scene as much as refueling." [Eater DC, Twitter]
