Part of Mike Isabella Concepts

Chef Mike Isabella and George Pagonis opened Kapnos along the Fourteenth Street Corridor in July 2013. Isabella and Pagonis 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.
