cava2017260Following a $30 million cash injection, Mediterranean-style fast food eatery CAVA is opening two new outposts in the city, in Nolita and Park Avenue South.

The national chain currently has one New York City location, at 143 Fourth Ave., off Union Square.

The 325 Park Ave. So. location, which is slated to open this summer, is 2,044 square feet and will seat 35 people.

The Nolita spot, at 50 Spring St., is on track to open this fall. At 3,100 square feet, it will have 35 seats and comes with an outdoor patio and a mezzanine dining level.

The concept boasts salads, grain bowls and pitas by founding partner and executive chef Dimitri Moshovitis, with signature items like spicy lamb meatballs, and cauliflower quinoa tabbouleh, along with seasonal juices, soups and roasted vegetables.

There are 28 locations across the country, with more than 20 to open this year — including four more in the greater New York area, from Jersey City to Rye Brook, Greenwich, Conn., and Paramus, NJ.
