Chef Mike Isabella opened Kapnos along the Fourteenth Street Corridor in July 2013. Isabella draws inspiration from travels in 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 in addition to brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
