It’s All Greek!

Mike Isabella

Kapnos, Graffiato, and G Sandwich, Washington, D.C.

After Top Chef rocketed him to stardom, Mike Isabella won the hearts of Capitol City diners—and critics—with his innovative Italian restaurant concepts. Join us at the Beard House for a taste of Isabella’s latest venture, Kapnos, with this delectable menu inspired by the cuisine of northern Greece.
