Kapnos Taverna Brings a Dose of Greenery to Ballston

Hanging plants and splashes of blue figure into the restaurant's design.

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

Blues and whites may figure into the design of Mike Isabella's Kapnos Taverna, but this restaurant looks nothing like a traditional Greek restaurant cliche. Instead, dramatic hanging plants and warm teal and turquoise hues add to the design of the Ballston space.

Kapnos Taverna was designed by local firm StreetSense, who worked with terra cotta, lava rock and Greek tile themes to create the look, which features a distressed, angular bar. There is seating for 165; a 60-seat patio with fire pits will arrive in the spring. The restaurant is scheduled to open tomorrow.
