Question about Cava in Rockville

ViolentScarlet May 15, 2008 08:16 AM

I'm really eager to try Cava, and we went there a few weeks ago on a weeknight and it was completely packed with a long wait so we had to settle for a nearby sushi joint. My question is: how early would we have to get there on a Saturday to not have to wait? I know they open at 5; if we went at 6 would we normally be able to get seated right away or do we have to go right at 5? I hate waiting, and would much rather have to eat earlier than wait.

      On a weekend, unless you are there by 5:00pm, you are likely to have to wait!

      By the way, if the suchi joint you went to nearby was Suchi Oishii, you certainly didn't have a bad time of it. I love that place!

        Can you get there for lunch time? We go for lunch on weekdays and no crowds at all.

          Definitely pretty early. Get the shrimp OPA OPA!
