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.

"Booked here on Thursday evening after seeing this on the Eater Hotlist for Washington, DC. We were offered seats at the kitchen counter, something we really enjoy as you can usually interact with the chef while dining. George, the chef, barely greeted us, and really did not interact with us at all, even when we asked him direct questions. And it was not like he was super busy all the time...
The food however was fantastic. We ordered the chef's tasting menu and they were happy to oblige our dietary restrictions. We watched the food go out and it all looked amazing. We had fish, great vegetables, and the most wonderful roasted goat. The desserts were great too.

Cocktails have always been a passion of chef José Andrés. It started over 15 years ago when he created the Salt Air Margarita at Café Atlántico. Today, José pays homage to the golden era of cocktails at barmini by José Andrés, a hub of chef-driven libations that serves as his cocktail lab for all of his restaurants and projects. A pioneer in avant-garde cooking, José's passion is on display at barmini as guests are taken on a whimsical journey of yesteryear via classic cocktails and ingredients. Barmini operates as a true extension of minibar, a learning center where chefs and bartenders collaborate and where heritage meets innovation.

"I have eaten at e by Jose Andres in Las Vegas and wanted my husband to share the experience while in Washington, DC. What a fantastic time we had! Brody the chef was lovely - warm and friendly - and the food was amazing. One surprise after another with great wine pairings. I don't think I will ever forget the rubber duckie course. Everyone sits at a bar and watches the dishes being plated - this is not the place for a group of 4 or more but for 2 people who love food - this is exciting and to be remembered for a long time.
We went to barmini before our 8:30 dinner - another lovely experience. Fantastic cocktails and bar snacks with great bartenders who share recipes and are eager to talk about what they do.

"Booked for dinner here the night before the Mt. Tremblant Ironman. The place was busy and it was raining so no outside tables. Service was professional if a little disengaged. Food was good but not great - I had 2 appetizers (beef carpaccio and caprese salad). Two companions had mushroom ravioli - one as a starter and one as a main (small portion for the price) - and also the trout appetizer. Food came out FAST - did not make for a leisurely evening but our son was doing the Ironman so an early morning start for all of us.
While there are many places to eat in Mt. Tremblant, they are aimed at skiers so lots of pizza, burgers etc. This place could be considered more high end but frankly, it felt like it was stuck in the 1980s to me.
