Mike Isabella’s Ballston Restaurants
Published March 3, 2017
Arlington Magazine features many articles on what is happening around the area and covers a wide variety of restaurants, among other businesses. A 2016 article titled Restaurants That Innovate is particularly interesting for the way it dives in to describe unique eateries around Arlington. At the Shooshan Company, we’re especially proud to see Mike Isabella’s restaurants located in The View Luxury Apartments: Kapnos Taverna, Yona and Pepita Cantina.
Regarding these restaurants, the article states:
“It took celebrity chef Mike Isabella just one year to transform the corner of Wilson Boulevard and Quincy Street in Ballston into a food mecca. The address (4000 Wilson) is now home to the trifecta that is Kapnos Taverna, Pepita and Yona. ‘They are so different, I think they feed off of each other,’ says the restaurateur/chef of his Greek, Mexican and Asian-inspired hot spots. ‘It’s like living on a city block where you can walk down the street and have a lot of options. People in that area don’t have to go far, whether they want a watering hole, food to go or to sit down for something to eat.'”
The article goes on to highlight unique dishes of each establishment, such as Pepita Cantina’s 54 cocktails, Yona’s uni waffle and Kapnos’ taramasalata.
The restaurants are not only great additions to Ballston, they are an incredible benefit to residents of The View Luxury apartments.
