From a press release:
“The latest restaurant group to join Washington, DC’s thriving Shaw neighborhood, Cava Grill is thrilled to announce a fall 2016 opening in Shaw’s hip epicenter at The Shay building. The 2,500 square foot space will place focus on the local community with art and lifestyle events hosted throughout the year. Cava Grill’s Shaw location will make 20 locations by fall, with eight coming this year including Silver Spring, Dupont Circle, four Northern Virginia locations and a second location in Los Angeles, CA.
Cava Grill’s new Shaw location will feature the restaurant’s signature health-conscious fast-casual Mediterranean fare and afresh look, with an expanded open-kitchen layout; local beer and wine on tap; new menu items including seasonal vegetables roasted in Cava’s new stone-fired ovens, and rotating seasonal soups, juices, and teas made in-house daily; deeper relationships with local partners like Whisked!, Gordy’s Pickle Jar, and RunningByrd Tea; and additional community initiatives representative of Cava’s commitment to innovation, evolution, and attentiveness within fast-casual dining.”
