Inspired Food, Drink and More


Chef Michael Isabella originally opened Kapnos along the Fourteenth Street Corridor in July 2013. Isabella drew inspiration from travels in Greece to create a menu of spreads, breads, vegetables and other small plates, including showcasing his signature wood-grilled octopus.  Since the restaurant closed we write and share information on Food and Drink and the restaurant industry.
