Cava Mezze, DC-based Greek restaurant, headed to Harbor East

The owners of Cava Mezze, a Washington-based group of informal Greek restaurants, have signed a lease for their first Baltimore location.

Cava Mezze will open in the Hyatt Place Hotel, a $24.4 million construction project just underway at the intersection of Fleet Street and Central Avenue in the Harbor East area. The project is scheduled to open in the fall of 2014.

Friends Ike Grigoropoulos and Ted Xenohristos, along with chef Dimitri Moshovitis, opened the first Cave Mezze in a Rockville strip mall in 2006 They added a Capital Hill location in 2009 and a third one in Clarendon, Va., in 2011.

The specialty at Cava is small plates, which are called tapas in Spain but mezze in Greece, of traditional Greek dishes like souvlaki, spanakopita, lamb chops and calamari.

The restaurant group also operates a fast-casual spin-off concept, Cava Grill, which now has five locations in the D.C. metro area.
