“Worth The Trip” writes The Washington Post about Nage D.C., an upscale-casual eatery with a menu based in French cooking, but with a palette of global flavors. Complimented by smart wines & fun cocktails, and an energetic bistro ambience; Nage offers an approachable dining experience driven for our guests’ enjoyment. Elegant yet affordable lunch offers either a quick bite or an impressive afternoon dining experience with sandwiches, salads, and light entrees. For dinner, signature items include Baked Oysters, Crabcakes, Seafood a la Nage, Nage’s Famous Truffled Fries, and Center Cut Ribeye. Checkout the daily features on the chalkboard for an ever-changing list of interesting menu additions. The casual eatery boasts a fabulously soothing muted red, orange, & brown decorative motif complete with hanging lamps, cozy booths, and walls painted in energetic yet subtle shades. Find out why The Georgetowner labels Nage’s food as “Shamefully Delicious Edible Concoctions”.

"We've eaten here before and it has been better. This time we ordered the calamari and it was tiny, hard circles you could hardly taste. The shrimp appetizer was two shrimp, not just overcooked but almost spongy, as if they had been frozen and unfrozen more than once., The mushroom baklava was good as was the onion soup. I must say we did complain and they were very apologetic but we were on a living social coupon so, since it required us to spend $40 there was no point in their taking things off the bill."

"I went for lunch and had a brisket torta (sandwich). It was delicious and very reasonably priced ad came with a good sized caesar salad. The only problem was that one of the wait staff kept trying to bring us food that was destined for other tables."

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.

"It was my second visit. Three of us went for Restaurant Week; one was a vegetarian. Every bite was delicious. I am a meat eater but I could have eaten a whole dinner of the cauliflower. I don't usually order chicken in restaurants but this is a whole other animal. It is smokey and crispy and juicy. The service was great. There was not one weakness in the meal. We ate outside so the noise level was fine."
