|Road Trip to DC!|
In case you don't know, mezze is the Greek version of tapas, small dishes that are perfect as a small meal or pre- or post-theater food. Once they got to DC, Gavin had decided that he wanted to try Cava and so after a couple of trips around the block, they found a parking spot and went in.

They both ordered the gyro, no surprise since where we live there are not many places to get a real gyro. When the gyros came, they were much bigger than expected given that Cava is a mezze restaurant. The lamb was delicious and Gavin loved the tzatziki that is an important part of a gyro. Both Bridget and Gavin were surprised that the Cava version included french fries!!They both agreed trhat we all have to go to Cava the next time we are in DC, since there were several things on the menu that they wanted to try. The waiter was extremely helpful, wrapping Bridget's half a gyro for the return trip home and providing am little container of harissa and pita for us to try at home.The verdict- If you have a chance to check out Cava Mezze , give it a try, it is a great place for a leisurely meal with friendly helpful staff and good food at a very reasonable price.

When Gavin returned the other half a gyro was ready to be reheated and was even great after the trip back to Newport News and gentle heating in the microwave, so I can only imagine how good it was fresh. So check out Cava if you get the chance, it is one of the best restaurants I never ate at!
