So JJ is officially back from NYC and she has lots of new addresses to share with you all. But one of the most spectacular of her discoveries had to have been CAVA. So what is this place and what does it have anything to do with sweetgreen and Chipotle dating. Well, it’s a Mediterranean fast-casual restaurant with many locations in NYC (and on the East Coast). The concept is similar to Chipotle and sweetgreen, where you put together your meal with either a combination of greens and grains, grains or greens. You then have the option of up to three different sauces, a protein (including options like lamb meatballs), as many veggie toppings as you want and dressing. Yes, it even comes with a piece of free pita. Cava is seriously the move! JJ’s order remained pretty consistant throughout her stay: romaine and brown rice, hummus, harissa and red pepper hummus, grilled chicken, tomatoes, cabbage, hot peppers and picked onions, topped with their seasonal spicy apricot dressing! She misses it already.
