Cava Grill opened in Bethesda

Initial Thoughts:
  • Design:  Sleek and inviting.  Reclaimed wood benches. 
  • Food:  Delicious fast-casual.  Fresh ingredients and pitas with roasted lamb.  I loved the dips with pita chips. 
  • Drinks:  They offer a limited selection of beer and wine.
  • Price:  Cheap, around $6 for a pita
  • Would I go back?  Yes.
Drawing from the success of Cava’s modern take on Greek food, Cava Grill aims to bring these authentic flavors to the fast-casual setting, redefining signature dishes for time- and budget-conscious customers. It reminds me of Chipotle, but with Greek food.  What a great concept!  I think this place will do really well.  I recommended that they add those delicious fried Spanikopita to the menu.  All of the food is delicious.  I can't wait until they open one in DC!
