707 H Street, NW
Finally got an opening date for the Cava coming to the former Capital Q BBQ space. From a press release:
“Cava Grill is excited to announce the opening of its sixth location, in DC’s
Chinatown neighborhood at 707 H St. NW, on Tuesday, October 14. The first opening of its fall expansion, Cava Grill Chinatown will open with new menu items, enhanced design features, deeper relationships with local partners, and additional community initiatives representative of Cava’s commitment to innovation, evolution, and attentiveness within fast-casual dining.
Cava Grill is inviting the Washington area to celebrate its newest location with their Community Day tradition from 11am to 2pm, where lunch (rice bowls, salads, pitas) is free, with an encouraged donation to one of their local non-profit partners. 100% of donations will benefit MicroGreens and City Blossoms, both of which champion healthy eating in the DC community.
In Cava Grill’s newest partnership, with local DC dough baker Optimal Grains, pita will be made from scratch and baked fresh in Cava’s new stone-fired oven – a feature being added to all locations this fall. This new pita is preservative free and made from organic flour. Other additions for all new locations will include local beer and wine on tap; an open-kitchen layout; engaging information on allergens, nutrition, and sourcing partners; rotating seasonal menus with soups, juices, and teas made in-house daily; and featured items from local partners Whisked!, Gordy’s Pickle Jar, and RunningByrd Tea.”
