I first met Henry at Bambu prior to its closing. He shared with me his plan and vision about his next project in CoCo - CAVA by Bambu. Getting to then experience his vision has been amazing. When you walk into Cava you feel like you've walked into a Speak Easy in Chicago. Henry is welcoming to his friends and customers alike.
