The Maryland-based Mediterranean grill is steadily expanding its New York portfolio with four new locations planned for the next year.
CAVA is a popular chain of fast-casual Mediterranean restaurants that was established by owners Ted Xenohristos, Ike Grigoropolous, and Dimitri Moshovitis in 2006. The three friends endeavored to establish a new restaurant concept that could connect people with food that is both healthy and satisfying. Founded in Rockville, Maryland, the brand now operates over 80 chef-casual restaurants across the nation, and is also known for its popular line of dips and spreads that can be found at over 250 Whole Foods Markets.
Today, CAVA operates nine different locations across New York and is now getting ready to once again expand its portfolio with four new locations planned for the city. CAVA has just revealed that they will be launching three new locations in Manhattan over the next year, as well as another location in Brooklyn. CAVA’s new Brooklyn location, its second in the borough, will be opening up at 174 North Fourth Street in Williamsburg. The location offers 2,500 square feet of space on the ground floor, as well as an additional 1,500 square feet of space on the basement level.
In Manhattan, CAVA will be developing a new outpost for Chelsea at 307 Seventh Avenue, that will offer a total 4,900 square feet of space across the ground floor and basement. In Midtown East, CAVA will be taking over a 3,000 square foot store at 708 Third Avenue. Finally, CAVA’s Hudson Square expansion will be opening up at 350 Hudson Street, where they have acquired a store that offers 2,300 square feet of space.
While all four locations have long-term leases, the team has yet to indicate when precisely they intend to launch their new locations. While you wait, you can check out CAVA’s signature dishes at one of their nine extant locations across the city, and you can follow the brand on Instagram for updates on all their new expansions.
