There is a new restaurant opening tonight, 5 pm, at 14th and W. It is called Kapnos and will be a macedonian meze menu; the menu is mostly vegetables, but the design is centered around several 36" wood fired spits for roasting lamb, goat and pig. I may or may not be able to make it out to the opening weekend, but I'd be interested to hear any comments or reviews as they come in.

      Interesting menu. Unfortunately, no prices, so if I have to ask, I probably can't afford it.

        Split roasted mezze is about $16.00 for the lamb, pig, and goat. Chicken is $11.00. The lamb was fantastic. It had a nice crust on the outside while still being succulent. The suckling pig was tender and moist but a piece of sinew between the meat made the dish less appealing,

        A good majority of the menu is under ten bucks and the spreads come with bread made in house which makes the order more substantial.

        The roast duck phyllo pie was a standout. Great pistachio sauce and the tart dried cherries cut through the richness of the meat.

        I only had a few dishes so I'll withhold on making any judgments about the place. Would be interested to hear what others think.

          Is this Mike Isabella's new restaurant in Logan Circle?

            Went to Kapnos last night with one other person. We had a feta-based spread with flatbread, the gigandes, the poached cod, and the smoky beets. All were good, but the poached cod and feta spread were stand-outs. The flatbread is especially good; the name does not do it justice. It is like a thin, chewy, delicious pita. The four plates were plenty for us and came out to about $40, plus wine. Not bad for a great dinner.
