Washington D.C. based restaurant and culinary brand CAVA will open its doors at 79 S. Elliott Road, Chapel Hill, on Thursday, November 8th, 2018.
Prior to opening day, CAVA will give a free preview to the community on Wednesday, November 7th, 2018.
They’ll be offering free lunch from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. and free dinner from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Seating is limited so you need to reserve your time slot.
In addition, they’ll be donating the value of your meal to their nonprofit partner Sow Much Good, which works to help grow healthy communities in underserved neighborhoods.
CAVA was formed by three first-generation Greek Americans in 2011.
The way it works is that you customize your own meal from more than 50 offerings. You start with a base, like a salad, a grain bowl or pita, add up to three dips or spreads, like hummus, “crazy feta,” or tzatziki, then choose a protein, toppings and dressing.
One of the most welcome features of CAVA is the Nutritional Calculator. Select all the components of your meal, including the base, dips, spreads, proteins, toppings and dressings, and the calculator will tell you the complete nutritional information. You can tweak your meal to make it healthier for you, or swap out items to see how much damage that Crazy Feta will do.
The wide variety of menu items, plus the nutritional calculator, will make it easy to eat out, no matter what your dietary needs are.
