Well, that didn’t take long.
Only a day after Gypsy Soul, the Southern-leaning restaurant from James Beard Award-winning chef RJ Cooper, went dark, restaurateur Mike Isabella (Graffiato, Kapnos) confirmed by phone this morning that he will be taking over the space.”
Isabella will install a Kapnos Kouzina in the space. The focus, Isabella said, will be on rustic, regional Greek cooking, with a raw bar and family-style sharing (Bethesda is also soon to get a Kapnos Kouzina). The chef was attracted to the space because, he said, of the design and the stellar open kitchen.
