A couple of months ago, we mentioned that a group of Mediterranean dining spots based in Washington, D.C. was looking to open several locations in the Boston area, including one in Dedham. Now we have a bit more information on that proposed outlet.
According to an article in the Dedham Patch, Cava is looking to open at Legacy Place possibly in March of April of 2018, with the restaurant getting approval from town selectmen last week. As mentioned earlier, other locations of Cava are being planned for the Back Bay of Boston, the Fenway, and the Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham, though it is not yet known which will be the first to open in the region.
Cava, which started out in 2011, is a fast-casual chain that features customizable items that begin with a salad/grain/soup/pita base and with items such as hummus, falafel, feta, meatballs, braised lamb, olives, grilled chicken, and pickled banana peppers added. Its website can be found at http://cava.com/
