Yes, you should go to Kapnos Taverna even if you live within walking distance of Mike Isabella’s original Greek outpost, Kapnos, on 14th St. That’s because there’s a raw bar cranking out seafood towers that would make beachy Nantucket restaurants feel silly. Taylor Bay scallops, king crab, king salmon tartare, oysters, and marinated mussels all make an appearance alongside house-made condiments like harissa hot sauce and tomato-ouzo cocktail sauce.
