I ate takeout from Number 7 all the time. Where is Yummy Wok? That may have arrived after I left campus.

I’ve never eaten at a Cava, but noticed that one is being built at Town Center where the Barnes & Noble was before it was moved. I checked out the menu online and I am looking forward to giving them a try.

CAVA is 100% better (and fresher) than Chipotle, which is also pretty good.

I agree, but in the sense that you stand in line, choose a bowl or a wrap, and then pick what goes in it... its the same concept, only with mediterranean food. Theres another chain called Mezeh that is similar but way better IMO than Cava. If you like Cava, I recommend Mezeh if you ever see one.

Whether or not one restaurant or another is better than Chipotle, I would have killed to have one on campus when I went there. It's going to do gangbusters.

It might be busier than any other Chipotle in the area and make the one in Ghent the quicker location for a drop in. They're gonna get the students, military, some commuters and delivery to all the neighborhoods around campus.

I'm holding out hope for a Mr Shawarma on campus. I think their presence would make a lot of students bypass the national chains.

Anyone know what happened to the planned restaurant by the owners of DVecs? I know there was a Pilot article or two and discussion on here. They were supposed to put the old Gray's sign behind the bar.

Never had Mezeh before, but Cava is great. Roti is another chain that is similar, but not as good IMO.
