Kapnos Kouzina: Abuzz in Bethesda- CLOSED

I glance up at my computer screen and see the tweet I’ve eagerly anticipated for months.  Kapnos Kouzina is officially taking reservations. Bethesda’s newest restaurant is from the prolific Mike Isabella and his partner George Pagonis, both former “Top Chef” contestants. I race to snag a table for opening night. My “Top Chef” fanaticism is well-documented on this blog, […]

Grapeseed: Looking for Love- CLOSED

Ah, Bethesda.  I wish I loved you more.  You are geographically desirable.  You are attractive.  You are fairly well built.  But try as I do, I just can’t seem to fall in love. My latest attempt is at Grapeseed American Bistro. It’s one of Washingtonian’s 100 Best Restaurants, so hopes are high.  Everything seems right […]
