Cava Is Opening at Legacy Place in Dedham

by Marc Hurwitz

A couple of months ago, we mentioned that a group of Mediterranean dining spots based in Washington, D.C. was looking to open several locations in the Boston area, including one in Dedham. Now we have a bit more information on that proposed outlet.

According to an article in the Dedham Patch, Cava is opening at Legacy Place possibly in March of April of 2018, with the restaurant getting approval from town selectmen last week. As mentioned earlier, other locations of Cava are being planned for the Back Bay of Boston, the Fenway, and the Derby Street Shoppes in Hingham, though it is not yet known which will be the first to open in the region.

Cava, which started out in 2011, is a fast-casual chain that features customizable items that begin with a salad/grain/soup/pita base and with items such as hummus, falafel, feta, meatballs, braised lamb, olives, grilled chicken, and pickled banana peppers added. Its website can be found at

[March 21, 2018 update: A Twitter post from @JustinA_PZD indicates that Cava opens tomorrow (Thursday, March 22) at Legacy Place, joining the Fenway location which opened in January; this is the second shop to open in the Boston area, as the Back Bay and Hingham locations have not yet opened. (In addition, Eater Boston says that Thursday is "Community Day" for the Dedham location, with free meals given out and donations collected for its non-profit partner Future Chefs. The official opening takes place on Friday.)]
