Mike Isabella Garnishes 14th Street With Greek & ‘G’


Kapnos is located on the corner of 14th and W Streets, NW

The 14th and U Streets restaurant boom moves north with the opening of Mike Isabella’s third restaurant, Kapnos, set for July 5.

In a first for 14th Street, Kapnos will introduce Greek to an area dominated by Italian. (Ghibellina, Etto, Piola, Matchbox, HomeMade Pizza Company, etc.)

But the Top Chef star won’t be left out of  D.C.’s “Little Italy” scene. A week after Kapnos gets off the ground, Isabella will open G next door, which will star Italian sandwiches by day and a tasting menu at night.

(While taking menu notes for G from his first Italian restaurant, Graffiato, let’s hope he took notes from his Georgetown joint, Bandolero, on reasonable noise levels.)

The two soon-to-be hotspots will be the first commercial spaces to open under the 14W apartment complex. The mixed commercial and residential property will add the city’s 10th Sweetgreen later this year.
