Cool dining at Cavo

Judith and Jane had a very different kind of dining experience at the new Cova restaurant in London’s latest hotspot, Outernet London, located at the intersection of Tottenham Court Road and Charing Cross Road. Outernet is a new entertainment district with music and art installations as well as exciting places to eat and drink and the largest purpose-built venue in Central London for 80 years

Found on the rooftop of the exciting new Outernet is Cavo, a stylish, elegant dining space with views over not only the nearby tower blocks but the lovely spire of St Giles church and other famous London landmarks. The menu is an interesting Mediterranean inspired one with influences not only from Spain and Italy but also Greece. The cocktails were not only inventive but also delicious (not always the case given the bravado of many bartenders) with the classic Negroni given an innovative twist. Cavo’s Aegean Negroni uses Raki from Greece and is served with oregano oil and a beautiful champagne cocktail was created with orange and Greek Metaxa brandy.

The food experience is described as an Odyssey and we certainly went on a journey, sometimes getting a bit lost with all the different options. Sharing is the name of the game here and so together we enjoyed small plates of oysters, moules, Coquilles Saint Jacques and red snapper tartare followed by cuts of Iberico pork and a first for us – Greek chips. The wine list is impressive and as imaginative as the cocktail and food menu, with the ambience relaxed and unhurried. Cavo is a great place to chill after work or enjoy a leisurely luxury lunch or pre theatre meal and when the weather warms up, the extensive roof terrace is set to be a central London summer hit.
