A Mediterranean Odyssey Awaits at The Outernet, Tottenham Court Road. Peter Morrell was there for the launch
The vast open-plan restaurant is now open at The Outernet, Tottenham Court Road, an immersive entertainment district in the heart of town.
CAVO’s additional outside terrace, set to be one of London’s most glamourous dining locations for 2023, will follow when it opens in April – offering unrivalled views over bustling Tottenham Court Road and London’s theatre district.
Cavo: A Mediterranean Odyssey
With its genesis firmly rooted in Mediterranean living and cuisine, CAVO is a celebration of everything the sea and the middle of the earth have to offer, taking over the 4th floor of The New Outernet building at Tottenham, Court Road.
Following the successful launch of hospitality concepts in Greece and Spain, London has been chosen as the next destination for founder Ivo Dimitrov who has set his sights on the capital for his next and biggest venture to date.
Head Chef Alberto Gargiulo has been appointed to oversee the menus that span the whole of the Mediterranean. Alberto Gargiulo grew up in Naples, where food is a cultural phenomenon and home to some of the best ingredients and dishes the Mediterranean has to offer.
Alberto’s career has spanned Italy, the UK and the USA with past roles at Cecconi’s Soho House and Pasta Evangelists. Overing the CAVO kitchen will be one of his biggest projects to date.
