Review

The chain has rebranded into a fast-casual dining concept. It uses data science, with strategic sensors in the restaurant to adjust to preferences, such as lower music volume when restaurant gets too loud.

The restaurant serves traditional Mediterranean with a modern twist to cater to American palate. Everything is fresh, sourced from partner farms to ensure better quality.

The Cava salad is a popular menu item. The falafel, hummus-and-pitta, and the spicy lamb meatballs are favorites as well.

The restaurant has a limited-service format where staff line up assembly-style to prepare orders. Customers can choose to sit at the tables to eat or have orders to-go.
