Chef Mike Isabella opened Kapnos along the Fourteenth Street Corridor in July 2013. Isabella draws inspiration from Northern 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.

8407 kitchen bar in downtown Silver Spring is a welcoming oasis of comfort and casual sophistication. From the sleek and stylish bar/lounge on the ground floor to the warm and rustic charm of the light-filled second floor dining room. 8407 offers something to please all moods and tastes.<br /><br />Executive Chef Justin Bittner's artisanal American menu features house made charcuterie, fresh, seasonal, locally sourced produce, meat and game as well as sustainable seafood. Pastry chef Rita Garruba's desserts end the meal on the perfect grace note. The dining experience is welcoming with knowledgeable service in a warm and approachable atmosphere. <br /><br />Not to be missed: Sunday Brunch, and Wine Lover's Mondays (exclusive 1/2 priced wine bottle selections for diners).

Step through our door and you will feel as if you leaped across the border. Start with a signature Chimayo Margarita, a locals favorite, next try the stuffed Avocado Salad, or the not to miss.Arturo’s Tortilla Soup; his grandmother's recipe, and the cult favorite, Crown Roast of Barbecue Spareribs. Chimayo has something for everyone, cozy booths, fireplaces, children's options and great service. After a long day on the mountain Chimayo is not to be missed!

"I love Chimayo, having been here two other times on trips to Park City. It IS pricey, and especially for a group. I came with four other family members, and the price of food was steep. That said, the food was delicious -- top notch. From ceviche to vegetarian options, meat and fish options, we all loved our meals. Our waitstaff were attentive, but the kitchen was slow -- it took a long time between our appetizer and main course. I planned for this restaurant before we came as a special night out, and we were not disappointed."
