    A Washington, D.C.-based group of fast-casual Mediterranean spots is expanding yet again into the Greater Boston area, with this location opening next to a mall.

    According to a message sent from @CMFoster23, Cava is planning to open in Burlington, with a cover letter within the site confirming this, saying that the dining spot would take up a portion of the space by the Burlington Mall where Sears Tire and Battery (also known as Sears Auto Center) had been. If approved, the new location of Cava would join others in Boston's Fenway and Back Bay along with outlets in Cambridge's Kendall Square, Dedham, and Hingham.

    Cava, which started out in 2011, features customizable items that include a salad/grain/soup/pita base and with options such as hummus, falafel, feta, braised lamb, olives, and grilled chicken added.

    The address for the proposed location of Cava by the Burlington Mall would be 85 Middlesex Turnpike, Burlington, MA, 01803. The website for all of the locations can be found at
