CAVA has announced the grand opening of a new downtown location at the corner of 6th Street and Congress Avenue, officially opening on Friday, August 10th, 2018. The East Coast-based fast-casual Mediterranean restaurant and culinary brand known for its healthy build-your-own bowls and pitas, marks the company’s third location in Austin since entering the market in June with locations on The Drag and Bee Caves Road.

CAVA 6th & Congress will open with the brand’s Summer Menu, which includes seasonal roasted vegetables of grape tomatoes, button mushrooms, green bell peppers and sweet potatoes, a seasonal topping of white bean salad, a seasonal spicy lentil soup and a savory spicy apricot dressing.
CAVA was founded in 2011 by childhood friends Ted Xenohristos, Ike Grigoropoulos, and Executive Chef Dimitri Moshovitis and now has more than 60 restaurants in eight states.

The menu is specially created to deliver an ultra-personalized experience for each and every guest, featuring over 50 offerings and 58 million possible combinations of bold ingredients and flavors.
