With no opening date announced for the long-awaited Kapnos and G on 14th Street, many of us are getting anxious to sample the goods. Well, an opportunity has presented itself. The Jersey-bred Graffiato restaurateur and Top Chef breakout star will preview G’s menu of sandwiches at his Penn Quarter spot (707 Sixth Street, Northwest) May 13 through 24 from 11:30 to 2. In the same month, Isabella will launch G GrabandGo in Edison, New Jersey, in collaboration with his sister and brother-in-law.

In February, Isabella gave us the scoop on what to expect at G—there will be some familiar favorites from Graffiato, including the popular roasted cauliflower and the Caesar salad with cream-cheese croutons, four sorts of sandwiches, and, at night, a tasting menu featuring seasonal ingredients. The pop-up will showcase limited offerings from the full menu, including a roasted suckling pig sub, a chicken Parmigiano sandwich, and a Greek salad with red wine vinaigrette. You can check out the offerings after the jump.
