Cava Mezze, Washington DC

Cava Mezze is an example of vision coming to life. You know when you look at a neighborhood and say, “Why doesn’t anyone put up a (insert cuisine) restaurant here? There is nothing like that in this area!”

Greek restaurants are a dime a dozen but Greek tapas places, especially modern and stylized such as Cava, seem to please a particular restaurant crowd looking for a twist on regular Greek fare. Built by three friends who asked the same question and actually took matters into their own hands, the food in this restaurant does taste like it was part of a dream.

The very friendly server informed us that each dish came as small plates, so we had a ball in ordering.

Bread for the table came with olive oil, olives, and a delicious sundried tomato tapenade.
