Inside Kapnos, Mike Isabella's New Restaurant in DC

Eater DC has a closer look at Kapnos, ex-cheftestapant Mike Isabella's newest rustic Greek restaurant concept opening July 5 in Washington DC. The firm Streetsense designed the 160-seat restaurant "to emulate both the regional fare that is served and the Greek name of the restaurant" (it translates to "smoke"). Aside from the 10-seat chef's table, there's a 38-seat semi-private dining area (it has purple velvet curtains for privacy) overlooking the kitchen.

According to the press release (it's a .pdf), the menu stays true to the Greek and "smoke" theme, offering four-ounce tasting portions of a variety of meats roasted on a spit: There's suckling pig, baby goat, lamb, and more. If you're dining at the chef's table, you can get the whole animal brought tableside and carved to order in front of you.
