Fine Dining with a Funky Twist at Providence’s CAV
Tired of the same cramped restaurants of Federal Hill, Mike & I decided to try out something new & interesting. While randomly browsing online, I found an intriguing restaurant called CAV. It looked interesting enough to pay a visit. We decided that CAV looked like the perfect elegant restaurant for Mike’s birthday lunch.
Right off the bat, the first bonus came with the secluded location. CAV is conveniently located down a side street, away from all the traffic and crowds of Providence Place. It was nice to visit a restaurant that actually had street parking available! This put us in a good mood before we even entered the restaurant.
A most unique dining ambiance
Inside, we were greeted by a unique Asian and African decor scheme. Various statues and artwork grace the walls. The beautiful brick walls, chandeliers, and table design added to the ambiance. The overall look was very appealing and relaxing. The dining room was a welcome change from other Providence restaurants, both in terms of size and style.
Something for everyone on the CAV menu
On CAV’s lunch menu, you will find a variety of tempting dishes including: fresh chicken & seafood pasta entrees, chicken & tuna salads, and a variety of sandwiches and wraps. I went with the ChicVeg without the chicken. This delicious grilled flat bread sandwich combined onions, zucchini, eggplant, squash, bell peppers, and melted mozarella. The dark green side salad was a nice addition.
Mike enjoyed his TexMex, a Southwestern style wrap, complete with spicy chicken, pepper jack cheese, Chipolte mayo & salsa. We were both pleased with the quality of our entrees. Mike said it was the perfect place to go for his birthday lunch! Check out the full CAV menu. Note that there are plenty of gluten-free and vegetarian selections.
CAV features a winning combination of sophisticated service, eclectic design, and excellent food. Don’t miss out on this creative restaurant: you are in for a one of a kind treat!
