Update: Alas it was a typo in the WBJ post – this is the Cava Grill coming to 8th Street in the Shay that we’ve spoken about a few times.

Thanks to Barred in DC for passing on from the Washington Business Journal (RIP Permit Blog, congrats on the promotion!):

“1921 18th St. NW: Alterations for a new restaurant tenant, Cava Mezze Grill, in 2,380 square feet on the first floor. The restaurant will seat 74.”

You can see Cava Grill’s menu here. Updates as construction progresses.

    WAIT! IS QWEST NAILS CLOSING? YES I’M YELLING. THIS HAS BEEN MY GO TO NAIL SALON!

    yessssssssssssssssssssss

    Interesting location considering all the empty spaces still available on Columbia/18th further North. Oh well, still pumped.

  • AMDCer

    So is Qwest Nails moving or closing? They always seem busy, though I haven’t gone there in several years.

    The WBJ article has been updated – it’s 8th St, not 18th. However, there is still the Cava Mezze on 14th St across from Target, and it’s pretty reliably better than the Chipotle that’s there.

    Why would Cava open at 1921 18th St. NW when they are supposedly opening a couple of blocks north at the Shay as well?

    • AC

      I meant 8th not 18th.

        Isn’t that where the Shay is? Off of 8th?

        • blah

          yes the Cava is coming in on one of the ground floor retail spots at the shay. They have a big coming soon sign too outside the window right now

      • Anonalisa

        that is the Shay

        • DM

          Isn’t this old news then? The “Coming Soon” sign’s been up for a while.

  • INWDC

    I wish that wasn’t a typo. Damn.
