MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Nothing is lost in translation here, as this outpost is just one among a handful in town. From terra-cotta and Greek tiles to light fixtures crafted from bottles, Kapnos nails the classic taverna effect. And with two rotating, wood-fired grills, it clearly has a menu to match. This kitchen is all about the classics—roasted chicken, lamb and pork. Reserve a seat at the “chef counter” and you’ll see these spits in action, churning out the likes of stone-baked flatbreads and seafood dishes. But any good Greek restaurant worth its sea salt is about sharing, so expect a long and varied mezze selection. Quench this savory feast with a spiked lemonade on tap at the bar, which also happens to make a nice perch for solo diners wanting in on the fun.
