I went to Cava for Restaurant Week 2012 with a friend and we were both very impressed! It's a small restaurant down one of the alleys (not sketchy) downtown and very cozy. We sat at the bar since the tables were booked, but I think that worked out even better! The bartender was very friendly and helped us make our choices as well as explain what some of the less-common ingredients were. He made us unique drinks with cider and they were very good.
We tried to order different items and share, which was a great choice since everything was fabulous. We tried both of the 1st courses - baby beets with burratta (best cheese ever) which was to die for and also the butternut squash soup with chocolate and marshmallow- super creamy and delicious!
For the second course we tried the rabbit with lentils which was so moist and well seasoned. We also got brussel sprouts with chestnuts and pomegranates- everything was well paired, we just didn't enjoy the chestnuts.
We both got the moxie braised shortrib with sweet potato and graham cracker for the third course due to allergies and personal preferences. We both agreed this was our least favorite course just due to the overall sweetness of the dish...still good, but we were saving room for dessert!
For the fourth we had the pumpkin spice cake and churros with hot chocolate. The cake was very moist and nicely flavored. The churros were sooo crispy and soft! I didn't love the chocolate for dipping, but the churros didn't need it anyway!
We will definitely be coming back again!
