Dazzling Harry Potter Dining Room Few Hours From CNY Serves Up a Magical Meal
Go Hogwarts over a dazzling Harry Potter inspired dining room that's just a few hours from Central New York and totally worth the drive.
Dine amongst the magic, under 500 floating candles and pumpkins, in a restaurant known for its stunning displays all year long.
Take a tour of the Wizard room that is right next to the Hogwarts Express at Cava Restaurant.
Cava Restaurant is in Southington Connecticut, about three and a half hours from Utica. It first opened in 2008 and has been garnering rave reviews from critics and guests ever since.
The dining space transforms throughout the year. Twinkling lights fill the room for a stunning Christmas display. There are even tributes to the Polar Express, Willie Wonka, and Frozen this past winter.
Frozen Dining Room
Travel to a Mediterranean resort without leaving the country. The rooftop patio focuses on nature and features ceiling pergolas, a stone-carved fireplace, crystal chandeliers, and fountains. The retractable roof and side awnings allow you to enjoy a meal without worrying about Mother Nature. There is even in-floor heating to keep you warm after the sun goes down.
The dining room isn't the only space transformed at Cava. Captain Jack Sparrow traveled from his pirates in the Caribbean to the outdoor patio.
Cava is not only known for its stunning dining room displays, but the fine dining Italian restaurant is also known for delicious food. From steak, chicken, seafood, and pasta, to the raw bar, guests come from miles around to enjoy the atmosphere and the menu.
Reservations are highly encouraged. Cava Restaurant is at 1615 West Street in Southington Connecticut, 3.5 hours from Utica.
