Mike Isabella Heading to Arlington

September 11, 2013

Graffiato chef/restaurateur Mike Isabella is headed to Arlington. Isabella is planning the 185-seat Kapnos Taverna in a 4,700-square-foot space at 4000 Wilson Boulevard in Ballston. The Virginia Kapnos will have many of the same dishes as the original, but it will also offer weekday lunch, brunch on weekends, and a happy hour menu. There will be one spit for roasting whole chickens, pork shoulders, and lamb. Look out for ten on-tap cocktails—as at the first Kapnos and at Graffiato, Taha Ismail will be in charge of drinks—a 200-bottle wine program, and a 40-seat patio. Isabella is shooting to open Kapnos the second in summer 2014. (Washingtonian)
