In early August I dined at the only-opened-for-lunch new midtown Todd English restaurant, Ca Va. It has since opened fully, though it has yet to be reviewed by NYMag. (The New York Times, however, did compose an extraordinarily accurate review.)
The restaurant was a LITTLE squeaky clean/ chain restaurant- feeling, but the food was pretty good. MAJOR COMPLAINT: THEIR FUNKY MODERN PLATES! A fork could NOT stay propped on the sides of the dinnerware. Very inconvenient to attempt eating with a sauce-drenched fork. This was not “ca va.” The chicken was REAL GOOD. Yumminess below!
