Chef Mike Isabella opened Kapnos along the Fourteenth Street Corridor in July 2013. Isabella draws inspiration from Northern Greece to create a menu of spreads, breads, vegetables and other small plates, including his signature wood-grilled octopus.

Two wood-fire grills with rotating spits and a large oven for stone-baked flat breads service the 160-seat restaurant. Guests enjoy carvings from whole animals that have been spit-roasted all day, including lamb, goat, duck, chicken, and suckling pig.

Kapnos is open for dinner seven nights a week

Editorial Reviews

Review - Kapnos - Washington, DC
Jim Shahin, The Washington Post | July 16, 2013

George Pagonis looks more like a cross between a surgeon and a handyman than a chef as he works intently with a pair of pliers to secure a whole lamb to a spit. His movements are precise, his focus intense.
