Mike Isabella's anticipated Greek restaurant, Kapnos, is all set to open its doors July 5 and dish out spit-fired goat, spanikopita and more. The restaurant's design, from Bethesda-based Streetsense, is designed to feel at home in the mountainous regions of Greece, and to invoke the smokiness of the restaurant's cuisine. The space has room for 160 diners, and uses earth tones and natural materials to pull off its look.

There are accessories such as drapes, cushions and panels throughout the restaurant. A distressed wood bar with a charred top is one focal point. Communal bar tables are designed to feel lived-in. A 38-seat semi-private dining area has velvet curtains for privacy, as well as a view of the kitchen. There's a 10-seat community chef's table as well, along with wine bottle chandeliers, along with other various forms of lighting.
